Why Sunday Igboho Can’t Be Extradited To Nigeria - Lawyer by Le124(m): 1:36am On Jul 21
Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), the lead counsel for Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has said that the arrested rights activist cannot be extradited from Benin Republic because he is a “political offender”.

In a statement on Tuesday, Alliyu explained that the 1984 Treaty and an African Charter would prevent the government of Benin Republic from giving Igboho to Nigeria.

The PUNCH had reported that Igboho was arrested in Benin Republic on Monday night while attempting to leave the country for Germany.
Igboho was earlier declared wanted by the Department of the State Services after he escaped during a raid of his residence on July 1.

Alliyu said, “The Extradition Treaty of 1984 between Togo, Nigeria, Ghana, and Republic of Benin excluded political fugitives. It also states that where the fugitive will not get justice because of discrimination and/or undue delay in prosecution the host country should not release the fugitive.

“Now, Article 20 of African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights to which the four countries are signatories made agitation for self-determination a fundamental right to be protected by all countries.
This made Chief Sunday Adeyemo a POLITICAL OFFENDER who cannot be deported and/or extradited by the good people of the Republic of Benin for any reason.
Secondly, that he cannot get justice or even be killed is apparent in how those arrested in his house were detained for more than 21 days now without access to their lawyers. Even the wife among them could not change her undies for 21 days! Which inhuman treatment can be more this?

“We urge the good government of the Republic of Benin and the international community, especially Germany, to rise up and curb the impunity of the Nigerian Government by refusing any application for extradition of our Client who already has an application before ICC duly acknowledged.”

This Government that is ready to sacrifice oil wells just to apprehend agitators while offering amnesty to Boko Harm and keeping silence on the activities of the Fulani Herdsmen. Let's watch and see what actually happens.

Benin the 37th s tate of Nigeria cannot be trusted but I hope they do the right thing and release Chief Igboho ... Handing over anyone to Buhari govt is similar to handing over someone to ISIS

Hands crossed, let’s hope our brothers in Benin wont betray us. I believe Benin will charge him for passport fraud and will probably spend sometime there or pay a fine.

Every effort must be made to stop the terrorist government from bringing Sunday back to Nigeria.
Enough is enough, why are southern leaders getting intimidated and being cowered easily. So depressing .

Unfortunately he's not a political fugitive.
He was declared wanted for stockpiling dangerous ammunitions and hatching intention to cause harm.

The FG did not rely on his stance for self determination to declare him wanted. The government was also preemptive.

Stockpiling you said? This shows your FFG (Fulani Federal Government) to be full of shits and lies. The heat Kenya is receiving will prevent Benin from releasing him.
Which country is this? Igboho is only protesting the criminal activities of some Fulani herders who go about kidnapping, raping, killing people and destroying crops. Instead of addressing this the government who sworn to protect the law abiding citizens turned around to chase her law abiding citizens and protecting criminals.

Spot on. The FG can not continue to treat her citizens as if they are second-class citizens in the country. You treat one part of the country's criminals with levity while the other part is treated with brute force. This government is extremely nepotic in nature !!

I believe to be a leader is to enable others to embrace a vision, initiative or assignment in a way that they feel a sense of purpose, ownership, personal engagement, and common cause but all of these exist not in my country.

That was wen Naija border still opened wide for their economy. Nevertheless, Benin can still use Igboho to negotiate for better deal and trust me,Bubu will act fast since the character that involves is from down south.

Buharî will definitely be the LAST fool ani savage animal to rule Nigeria.
A very useless nepotistic senile idiot.
The SENILE VEGETABLE old fool is calling for war and he'll definitely get it.

On Sallah day, most people fed the people whose people are making the country miserable... Born to rule to destroy people.

EVEN AS A MUSLIM, I WILL NEVER feed people who mostly have stolen and own the most oil blocs in Nigeria yet no single refinery is functional.
I prefer to feed my poor christain and pagan neighbors than to feed those hypocrites.

They have been ruling Nigeria since inception (85% of all this times) with almost nothing to show for it.
6th largest producer of oil in the world yet, no functional REFINERIES, and everyone now has to wait for a single man to complete his own so that the useless fools can present him like the lord and saviour of Nigerians.

The government is barely doing anything.
Nigerians most provide everything for themselves.
Want good Power - you buy generator
Want good education - go to private schools
Want shelter - Build a house
Want good water - dig a borehole
Want security - provide one for yourself etc.

These people are:
Most corrupt
Most in government
Most useless
Richest and yet most wretched.

Why can't their own rich people and useless politicians feed and take care of them?

Why are they always coming down to the South (Lagos, Ọyọ, Ogun port Harcourt etc) to beg?

Some many of their few rich fools will be posting and flaunting in their sallah pictures in their ill-gotten wealth to show off, while more than their other 90% rest population go about to the street to beg for halms and constitute nuisance.
Very USELESS PARASITIC savage animals.
