Beninese Court Returns Igboho To Police Custody
Cour De’Appel De Cotonou has returned Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popular known as Sunday Igboho, to police custody pending further investigation.
The activist was returned to cell after a 13-hour hearing, which ended around 11:20 pm on Monday.
The case was heard behind closed doors as the court limited attendance to lawyers, Igboho’s wife, Ropo, and a few others.
Journalists and Igboho’s supporters who thronged the court in the large numbers were denied access.
Details of the judgment are sketchy as of the time of filing this report.
