Beninise court adjourns Igboho’s hearing till Today


The hearing of the prominent Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, at Beninise court has been adjourned till today, Friday, July 23.

Igboho was returned to the custody of Brigade Criminelle in Cotonou, Benin Republic yesterday to continue the hearing of the charge leveled against him.

Igboho is being tried for obtaining a Beninese passport without being a citizen.

Igboho and his wife, Ropo, were arrested at the Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou on Monday, July 19 while trying to catch a flight to Germany.

After the hearing of the case at the Cour D’Appel De Cotonou, the government lawyer didn’t address journalists.

Ìgbòho’s lawyer, however, explained that “this is not the best time to say anything on the case” and then expressed optimism that things would turn out for good.
