BREAKING: Benin Republic May Reject Igboho’s Extradition by Bodmas06: 10:51am On Jul 20, 2021
Benin Republic may reject the extradition of arrested Yoruba Nation Agitator Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, The Nation has learnt.

The Nation has reported Igboho was arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night while attempting to flee to Germany.

Leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), Professor Emeritus Banji Akintoye, confirmed to The Nation Yoruba Patriots are working hard to provide assistance for Ighoho towards preventing his extradition to Nigeria because “Benin Republic is a land that respects the rules of law”.

He called on all Yoruba people within and beyond the shores of Nigeria to ensure their ancestral land is not defeated by invaders.

“I received last night the troubling information that Chief Sunday Adeyemo fondly called Igboho had been arrested at the Cotonou Airport.

“I and other Yoruba Patriots who are immediately available are now working to provide the assistance necessary to ensure that nobody will be able to do to him anything unlawful or primitive and to prevent him from being extradited into Nigeria which is strongly possible.
“Fortunately, Benin Republic is reliably a land of law where the authorities responsibly obey the law. We have secured the services of a leading and highly respected lawyer whom we can confidently rely on.

“What the situation now calls for is that the Yoruba nation at home and in Diapora must stand strong, resolved that neither Sunday Igboho nor any other Yoruba person will henceforth be subjected to inhuman or dehumanising treatment of any kind.
“We Yoruba nation are, by the grace of God, a very strong nation. We must arise now to show that strength.

“For a start, we must all see to it now that Sunday Ighoho will get his freedom back so as to be able to move and operate as a free person. We all know he has committed no crime.”

He added: “We know that some people are trying to suppress or even eliminate him only because he stood up to defend his kinsmen, women and children who are being massively killed and raped in their ancestral home Land; who are having their assets and means of livelihood destroyed, and who are facing ethnic cleansing and even genocide without having the benefit of protection by the rulers of their country.

“We know, furthermore, that for the protection of his people who are being brutalised, he has joined hands with many of his brethren to take the legally-appropriate step, namely to seek the intervention of the International Criminal Court.”

The best thing they can do is to release him under the pretext that he escaped, so that he can go and try his luck elsewhere, because I am sure Nigeria government would be putting heavy pressure on Benin republic government as we speak. He can try the Libya route to escape to Europe because I don't trust all these Subsaharan African countries.

The Nigerian political atmosphere will be lively this week.

For the extradition, I doubt if it'll be possible. Benin Republic has quite a large number of Yoruba's as citizens, and are still like kinsmen. Historically, they were neighbours to the Egba people in Abeokuta before the discord (Dahomey war). In short, they'll like to 'be their brother's keeper'

Well ion think Yoruba leaders would keep mum and allow igboho go thr same fate Kanu went thr. Igboho on the other hand is a political tool and not expendable more reason why no SW politician even Tinubu has come out to condemn him. But let's watch as things unfold

No, Igboho mistake was insulting Elders, Governors and Traditional rules of Yoruba Land.
E be like say him no know history.

Why,do you think the Southern governors asked the securities that they should request for their permission b4 carrying out any military operation / activities in South.

If he was Arrested in Southern Nigeria, He might be lucky to be saved (by the same southern governors and traditionals he insulted)

But he wasn't arrested in Southern Nigeria

Something tells me that this story of Sunday Igboho obtaining Beninoise passport illegally and trying to fly to Germany might be a well-written script playing out. The main purpose, I believe, is to charge to him to court in Benin Republic for immigration offence and keep him in custody while the case proceeds. In this case, any extradition application from Nigeria will wait until the court case goes full circle.

However, if Nigeria extradicts him, then my conspiracy theory becomes wrong. Until then ...

With a Benin republic passport he would have travelled through Ghana or Ivory coast or Togo instead of trying to travel from Benin knowing that his chances of getting caught are high

Did Igboho kill?
Did he commit treason? undecided
Did he jump bail?

Igboho and Kanu are very different
White and black

Why are you disguising with a Yoruba name? grin
