    Nigeria Government May Threaten Economic Sanctions Against Benin Republic Over Sunday Igboho’s Case

    Benin Republic

    Following unconfirmed reports that the Benin Republic authorities may be willing to allow the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho), to be extradited to Nigeria to face alleged criminal charges after being declared wanted by the Department of State, strong indications emerged last night that the Federal Government may be exploring a ‘Plan B’ over the resumed trial of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho (DSS).

    According to a well-informed source, the government has been considering other ways to retaliate since the trial began; given the controversies, it has sparked, should the Benin Republic decide to turn a blind eye by refusing to sanction Igboho’s extradition, which could take the form of “heavy economic sanctions” against the West African nation.

    The charges levelled against the Yoruba Nation activist include arms smuggling, incitement to violence, and calling for the Yoruba to secede from the Nigerian state, all of which Igboho and his lawyers have rejected.

    This event, however, came on the same day that it was reported that media and supporters of the Yoruba Nation activist were denied access to his hearing the day before.

    According to an online news portal, TheCable, Igboho’s followers were in court as early as 7:30 a.m. on Monday, anticipating the entrance of the Yoruba youth leader, who has been detained since Thursday. However, a source who requested anonymity on the government’s likely adoption of a “Plan B” in the case of Igboho’s extradition stated the subject was now being evaluated with a possible breakthrough.

    The source said: “I know the Federal Government is currently looking at the situation but I can tell you that government is looking at making her fellow counterpart see reason with it. You know the Benin Republic enjoys a lot of economic benefits from Nigeria and wouldn’t want to sabotage it.

    “But in the event that they think otherwise, the options economically are there to explore and you can agree with me that nobody would want to truncate such golden opportunities.”

    In the meantime, there was no sight of Igboho at the court, which was set to begin at 10 a.m. yesterday. Many detainees were reportedly transported to court for hearings in minibuses as many more waited quietly, but none of the buses had Igboho on board.

    However, a source close to the courts informed The- Cable that Igboho was brought to court before anyone else to avoid any potential controversy or fight.

    Igboho was now in the “phase of law enforcement” in the court, according to the court personnel, and was currently indoors with the prosecutor in charge. Idris Oladejo, Igboho’s priest, verified to TheCable that his friend, for whom he “had been fasting and praying,” is in court. The counsel for Igboho has also been observed entering and exiting the chamber.

      That is just an empty threat. The Nigeria Government closed its border against the Benin Republic for almost one year. Nothing will spoil if Nigeria carries out the threat.
