The extradition hearing of embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, will hold in a court in Benin republic today July 22 by 10am. Igboho is currently being held by operatives of Brigade criminelle in Cotonou. He was arrested on Monday night July 19 while attempting to fly to Germany with his wife, Ropo. Igboho’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki in a live update this morning confirmed this development. “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 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 It will be recalled that men of the Department of State Services raided his home in Soka, Oyo State in the dead of the night killing two of his aides and arresting his other wife as well as riddling his exotic cars with bullets. Igboho rose to national prominence when he confronted the Fulani herdsmen in Ibarapa and expelled them from there. He later helped bring peace to some other Yoruba communities that were troubled before he expanded his agitation into the Yoruba tribe breaking away from Nigeria.
