Sunday Igboho

The Republic of Benin has rejected Nigeria’s attempts to hurriedly extradite the Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, to the headquarters of the Department of State Services in Abuja.

A source in Benin said, “The Nigerian government planned to extradite him on Wednesday, but our government said the rule of law must be followed as the world is watching us.” According to one of Igboho’s legal team, Pelumi Olajengbesi, in an interview, said Benin Republic had shown itself to be a country that respects the rule of law and due process.

He noted that despite pressure from the Nigerian government, the government of Benin had insisted on following due process including a repatriation hearing to determine whether or not Igboho was guilty as accused by the DSS.

Igboho has subsequently declared wanted by the Department of State Security for allegedly stockpiling arms to destabilize Nigeria under the pretext of the Yoruba nation agitation, but Igboho denied the allegation.
