Sunday Adeyemo, the Yoruba Nation activist, who is also known as Sunday Igboho, has arrived at Cour De’appal De Cotonou, Benin Republic, The PUNCH has learnt.
Igboho, who was arrested around 8pm on Monday at the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, may be tried for immigration-related offences.
The activist and his wife, Ropo, were arrested at the airport when they wanted to catch a flight to Germany.
“He (Igboho) was arrested in Cotonou on Monday night while he tried to travel. He was already at the airport with a passport. The immigration officers suspected the passport and so they stopped him. In the process, they discovered he was the one,” a source familiar with the matter had told The PUNCH.
Many Yoruba-speaking supporters of the activist were seen on the court premises on Thursday afternoon.
