Benin Republic Shuns Buhari's Request For Igboho's Extradition - SaharaReporters by HonNL: 1:36am On Jul 22, 2021
Efforts by President Muhammadu Buhari government to extradite Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Igboho, to Nigeria from Benin Republic have hit the rocks.

Authorities in the neighboring West African nation have insisted on a fair trial for Igboho before yielding to the demand, SaharaReporters has gathered.

The Beninoise government said it won't handle a request for extradition without first trying him for the local offense he was arrested for, sources told SaharaReporters Thursday morning.

SaharaReporters had reported how Igboho was arrested on Monday night in Cadjèhoun Airport, Cotonou with a "fake" Beninese passport while trying to flee to Germany.

He is expected to be arraigned for immigration-related offenses in Benin Republic later today after a spirited move by the Buhari government to bring him back to Nigeria.

The source told SaharaReporters that the Yoruba nation activist had hired a Beninois defense attorney, Rafael Huvehnou. Huvehnou is currently an attorney to the President of the Benin Republic.

Igboho may be granted bail today.

"We went to court at Cotonou today but they didn't bring Igboho to court, so we called his lawyer. He was in safe hands at Cotonou Criminal Brigade where he was detained. They will take him to court today.

"Igboho has given a statement to the police. He was traveling with a Beninoise passport adjudged to be fake," the source privy to the discussions told SaharaReporters.

The Nigerian government, through its Ambassador to Benin Republic, Tukur Buratai, is bent on extraditing Igboho to Nigeria.

It was learned that the former Chief of Army Staff wrote two letters to the government of the West African country and insisted on the arrest and extradition of Igboho.

Buratai had in the letters described the activist as a terrorist and murderer.

“Nigeria had written two letters to the West African state, describing Igboho as a terrorist and murderer. The first letter was written on July 7th. A second letter describing his bodily features was passed on to the Benin Republic yesterday,” a security source told SaharaReporters.

The Department of State Services (DSS) had on July 1 raided the residence of Igboho in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Igboho had planned a ”Yoruba nation Rally” in Lagos two days before the raid.

The DSS raided the residence, killed two people, and arrested 12 aides but Igboho escaped.

The agency alleged that Igboho was stockpiling weapons, and subsequently declared him wanted. The agitator has been on the run since the raid.

The desperation of this Zoo Government is on another level

Imagine Buratai calling someone murderer ...

Even the Devil will be amused by Nigeria’s wickedness angry



MODIFIED:You can see the issue is not about Yoruba nation but about that "terror" igboho represents for the killer herdsmen.
Igboho has not killed any fulani but he has chased many away.. And the fulani government is pissed

Fulani government wants igboho dead to serve as an example so nobody will stand against the fulani murderers again

See small Benin RepRepublic teaching Kenya how to be an independent country and abide by internationally recognized rule of engagement.

How I wish they will release Sunday Igboho after confirming his passport is not fake.

And look at Buratai addressing Igboho as a terrorist. But I'm pretty sure he won't use same adjective to qualify the bandits rampaging in Northwest and those slaughtering Benue people.

Zombies, please, when was Igboho declared a terrorist?

And who did he kill?

Look at brutai, the worst chief of army staff this country ever had calling another person a murderer. By God's grace, Sunday will board his flight to Germany by tomorrow. These guys do not know that their desperation is making the agitators have credible case before the international community. A gun-verment that releases terrorists, shoot peaceful protesters and arrest opposing voice, is that one a government?

Surely.
Like Jimmy Agbaje rightly said people run when they know they won’t get justice.
Imagine buratai is already calling him a murderer if they ask him to name Igboho victims now. He can’t name one.
They are trying very hard to spark a civil war so there won’t be election in 2023.
Everybody just need to calm down to seize power from this people in peace and then we can turn the rod.

Who did he murder and who has he terrorised?
Which court convicted him of the above crimes?

Good one by Beninoise government. They definitely would not want to deliver the man to the gallows.
Let Igboho be taken to court and serve whatever punishment there is for using a fake passport. After he has done his term, he can be deported back to Nigeria under special conditions. Hopefully then for Igboho, Buhari will no longer be in power and the less-harsh government will pardon him.

Fact is he broke a law in a foreign country. The foreign country has a right to execute their legal system on him.

The earlier we realise that Buhari and his Fulani cohorts are on a mission to destroy Nigeria, the better. Igboho's angst started with the Fulani killings in Igangan.

Self actualisation and determination is not a crime in Nigeria. I haven't seen where Igboho called for arms, asked his followers to attack security officials OR kill Fulanis. He only asked them to leave since they can't coexist peacefully but seeing that a COAS failure as Buratai could write two letters to the Beninoise government, describing a man who has had enough with killing of his own people in their land as a 'terrorist' and a 'murderer' says a lot about this unfortunate Fulani government.

Nigeria isn't working. The earlier the country disintegrate peacefully, the better it is for all of us. It is only a name and the North enjoys the name more than the South. Gumi walks free but Igboho who prevented further casualty in Oyo State is a killer and a murderer.

Anyways, before people get too excited, the The Beninoise government didn't say it won't extradite Sunday to Nigeria but said it won't without first trying him for entering the country with a fake passport.

Those BMC cretins know the truth but hunger won't make them admit it. The fact that hunger has been weaponised from time immemorial but became enhanced under a serial failure as Buhari says everything.

BMCs are directed on who/what to attack by those who hand them their allowance in order to look formidable. For the most part, notice how they avoid every thread highlighting Buhari's ever inadequacies and failures and how they move in droves to occupy threads of Igboho and how his apprehension will automatically make N1 equal to the Dollar.

And they keep running away from Nigeria and leave the nation to burn.

For all the deaths, the mental animal called Cownu and the evil ones among the herdsmen, along with boko haram , non of them will ever know peace in this life.

Daalu Chi,

NIGERIA IS NOT WITNESSING ANY TRIBAL WAR TODAY BECAUSE THESE NORTHERNERS NEVER RETALIATED OR CARRIED OUT ANY REVENGE ATTACKS ON THE YORUBAS AND IGBOS STAYING IN THEIR ZONES.

These Northerners who we labeled Illiterates have proven to be the most Intelligent people in this country.

I doff my hat for each and everyone from the North who showed a high level of patience and displayed absolute Maturity even when they were forced to act.

Today, the two idiots from Southeast and Southwest who have tormented, lampooned, abused, slaughter*d and maltreated Northerners who live in their zones have been arrested by the Authorities.

When you talk about Patriotic and dedicated Nigerians, you must have to face the North while making your instances, those guys are more Nigerians than all of us.

Mosques were destroyed in the South, no Church was destroyed in the North.

Islamic Premises were attacked in he South, no Christian domains was attacked in the North.

Northerners got k!lled in and many injured in the South, but no Southerner was k!lled or injured in the North.

Now we are watching the Nigerian Government, we expect to absolute judgement and justice done in this case, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho must face the full wrath of the law, this will go a long way to calm many nerves and bring back the peace of this Country.

Daalu Chi wink!!

I read that Burutai, a failed general says he wants to make sure that the repatriation of Sunday Igboho is his first success.

Imagine a failure like Burantashi lobbying Yorubas in Benin Republic to hand over their own son to fulani to crucify.

Fulani people wan use Yorubas shine.

Let’s see how it goes.

Yes my brother chief BMC griller.

I agree with you, also those supporting Boöhari and his evil governments will die a painful and miserable death for not speaking up for humanity. All Boöhari supporters and paid social media agents who support the kidnapping of people from other countries to come face biased trials for speaking out against terrorist herdsmen will die a brutal death.

All of us at BMC Grills wish for them a gruesome death, we encourage the herdsmen to attack and butcher them all and bring us their fleshes for proper human meat grilling we will present to our dulling daddy General Boöhari on the 1st of October as independence day gift.

Thank you able chairman.
