Igboho returns to cell as Beninese court adjourns hearing till Friday

Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has been returned to the custody of Brigade Criminelle in Cotonou, Benin Republic until tomorrow Friday, July 23 for the continuation of the hearing of the charge leveled against him.

Igboho is being tried for obtaining a Beninese passport without being a citizen.

Igboho and his wife, Ropo, were arrested at the Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou on Monday, July 19 while trying to catch a flight to Germany.

After the hearing of the case at the Cour D’Appel De Cotonou, the government lawyer didn’t address journalists.

Igboho’s lawyer, however, explained that “this is not the best time to say anything on the case” and then expressed optimism that things would turn out for good.
