Full details of Ighoho trail in Cototnu

The lawyer said there were nine lawyers who represented
Igboho at the Beninese court, and they were all shocked to see
how the case turned out.

Ibrahim Salami, one of the lawyers representing Sunday
Adeyemo, Yoruba Nation activist better known as Sunday
Igboho, says a new charge was brought up against his
client on Monday.

Salami said Igboho came to Benin through a back channel
and the judge said he might have had some criminal
association while in Benin, calling for further investigation
on his entrance and stay in the country.

The lawyer said there were nine lawyers who represented
Igboho at the Beninese court, and they were all shocked
to see how the case turned out.

In an interview, Salami said if Igboho wanted
to cause problems in Benin, he would have stayed longer
in the country, but he was willing to leave the country less
than 24 hours after coming to Benin.

He said the court eventually ruled that Igboho be held in a
Beninese prison until the investigation is concluded.

A final judgement has not been made by the Beninese
court sitting in Cotonou, but the lawyers are now seeking
to bail Igboho pending the investigation.
He said the case started with fighting off extradition to
Nigeria, but ended as a case of Sunday Adeyemo versus
the Benin Republic

ONIFTV  had reported earlier on Tuesday that Igboho
was sent back to prison by the court, following a 13-hour
hearing at the Cotonou court of appeal.
Igboho and his wife, Ropo, were arrested at an airport in
Cotonou last week and detained at the request of the
Nigerian government.
His lawyers requested the release of his wife on the
grounds that she had committed no offence against the
Nigerian state.
On Thursday, the court answered the prayers and ordered
her release and a return of her passport. Igboho was taken
to detention, where he has been up until Monday.
