Benin Republic will today present the embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemi also known as Sunday Igboho in court, to determine if he should be extradited or be allowed to proceed on his journey to Germany.
EyewitnessMedia had reported that Igboho, is currently held by operatives of Brigade criminelle in Cotonou, after he was arrested on Monday night while attempting to fly to Germany with his wife, Ropo.
The court hearing scheduled for Wednesday failed to hold.
The freedom fighter was not brought to Court for the hearing by the Beninoise authorities.
The hearing holds by 10am at a Beninoise Court.
Igboho’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki in a live update on early Thursday explained that his principal’s hearing will hold today.
“I can confirm, he will have the opportunity to be heard at the Benin Republic court, they respect international law. It will be held today (Thursday) by God’s grace.
“The sitting will be held at 10am in the morning at the Benin Republic court.
“The court will determine the fate of the extradition and we’ll also have the opportunity to present our case especially on the personality of Igboho.
“We know the magnitude of what the Nigerian government is trying to do if they try to get hold of Igboho but they will fail, by God’s grace.
“Their intention was to capture him (Igboho), but God fought for him,” he said.
