Igboho’s Extradition Hearing Holds Today In Benin Republic
Recall that Igboho was arrested by International Criminal Police Organisation in Cotonou, Benin Republic shortly after the Federal Government raised alarm that the activist was making moves to fly to Germany with his wife, Ropo.
The Oduduwa Republic agitator was before then declared wanted by Department of State Services, DSS after raiding his house in Ibadan the Oyo State capital over alleged activities threatening the cooperate existence of the country.
He is currently at the custody of the operatives of Brigade criminelle in Cotonou.
According to TheNation, the court hearing scheduled for Wednesday failed to hold as the self-acclaimed freedom fighter was not brought to Court for the hearing by the Beninoise authorities.
Igboho’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki confirmed this in a live update on early Thursday, explaining that his principal’s hearing will hold today.
I can confirm, he will have the opportunity to be heard at the Benin Republic court, they respect international law. It will be held today (Thursday) by God’s grace. The sitting will be held at 10am in morning at the Benin Republic court.
The court will determine the fate of the extradition and we’ll also have the opportunity to present our case especially on the personality of Igboho.
We know the magnitude of what the Nigerian government is trying to do if they try to get hold of Igboho but they will fail, by God’s grace. Their intention was to capture him (Igboho), but God fought for him.
