The government of the Republic of Benin has extended the incarceration of Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, for another six months.

Counsel to Igboho, Yomi Alliyu (SAN), disclosed that the Benin Republic government has renewed the incarceration without any hearing.

Alliyu had stated that “the government of the Republic of Benin has renewed the incarceration of Chief Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Igboho Oosa for another six months even though there is no criminal charge in their file in Cotonou and without extradition request from Nigeria.”

The 49-year-old agitator left Nigeria for the Benin Republic after the Federal Government declared him wanted and he has since spent over 200 days in detention in Benin Republic prison.
