Alleged Terrorism: Sunday Igboho Meets Lawyers In Benin Republic

Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, has met with his lawyers in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

Naija News gathered that Igboho met with his legal team on Friday over his court case in the French-speaking country.

Present at the meeting was the leader of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Professor Banji Akintoye and the Deputy leader of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Professor Wale Adeniran.

Naija News recalls that Igboho was conditionally released from Cotonou prison on March 7 after spending over two hundred days in detention on the accusation of criminal association.

He was initially arrested in Benin Republic while attempting to board a flight for Germany.

The activist had demanded independence for the Yoruba race following killings and unrest in the South-West region which is attributed to Fulani herders.

Igboho’s actions prompted President Muhammadu Buhari-led government in connection with security agencies to attempt to arrest him while in Nigeria.
