Sunday Igboho’s thought of being freed soonest has been squashed by the Benin Republic government as his saga took a new twist late Monday evening as the Benin Republic government has slammed fresh charges against the wanted Yoruba nation agitator.
Speaking to BBC Yoruba on Sunday, one of his lawyers, Ibrahim Salami, told BBC Yoruba that the legal team was expecting extradition charges from the Nigerian government against the activist.
However, the case took a new turn as at first, the judge wanted to know how Sunday Igboho entered into the Benin Republic through an illegal means. They also want to investigate how Sunday Igboho conspired with others to enter Benin Republic through unlawful means.
The court also asked to know how long he has been in Benin Republic and his plans in the country. They also raised a charge on whether he has plans to cause unrest or social disturbance in Benin Republic.
To that effect, Igboho has been further remanded to allow police to conduct a thorough investigation into the charges.
