    Activist Sunday Igboho Reveals Why He Fled Nigeria To Cotonou In Benin’s Court

    Sunday Igboho

    Sunday Igboho, a popular Yoruba agitator, has revealed why he fled Nigeria before a court in the Benin Republic.

    Recall that he and his wife were apprehended on July 19 while attempting to go to Germany.

    He has now been charged with entering the Benin Republic illegally.

    He also explains his mission in Cotonou, the capital of the Benin Republic.

    The court decided that he should be transferred from police custody to prison.

    David Ibrahim Salami, Igboho’s lawyer, told The Nation in Cotonou what happened on Monday at the Benin Court of Appeal, where the agitator appeared before three judges.

    He was in court from 7:30 a.m. till around 12 a.m.

    Salami, a Professor of Law in a Beninoise University, said: “While defending himself on the criminal allegations put on his head by Nigeria, Sunday Igboho told the judges that he had never been tried for any crime in his life.”

    According to Salami, Igboho said he had neither been invited to any police station nor any formal charges brought against him as a result of his agitation for the separation of the Yoruba nation from Nigeria.

    He explained that he was only trying to free ‘his people from the atrocities of killer-herdsmen, which made him incur the wrath of some powerful individuals in government.

    “When the judge asked him how and when he entered the Benin Republic, who housed him and who took him to the airport, Igboho told the court that his coming to the Benin Republic was to flee from his traducers who wanted to kill him in Nigeria.

    “He stressed that he spent less than one day in Cotonou before attempting to travel to Germany,” Salami added.

    The lawyer spoke further: “What amazed me is the fact that the judge was explicit that Igboho’s continued detention is not as a result of his issues with Nigeria, that he is being sent to prison because of infractions committed here in the Benin Republic.”

    Salami said Igboho was sent to prison to allow investigation into how he came into Cotonou and why.

    Salami said no date had been fixed for the continuation of trial because the authorities would need time to investigate how Igboho entered the country.

      Why did he flee? I learned that Sunday Igoho has the supernatural ability to disappear anytime and anywhere.  That was an interesting testimony in the court.

      Sunday Igbolo is the man of the people. Nothing do him. The Yorubas should rally around support for their freedom fighter.

      If he can prove his case without any reasonable doubt that he ran out of Nigeria for safety, then the Benin Republic’s court should temper justice with mercy. He needs to live to fight his oppressors another day.
