Olusegun Falola, one of the defence counsels for Sunday Adeyemo, a Yoruba youth leader better known as Sunday Igboho, has described the detention of his client at a prison facility in the Republic of Benin as a “blessing in disguise.”
On July 20, Igboho and Ropo, his wife, were arrested at an airport in Cotonou by Benin Republic’s security forces while he was trying to flee to Germany.
He was detained at the request of the Nigerian government, who had declared him “wanted” after raiding his home in Ibadan.
A week later, a Benin court blocked the immediate extradition of the self-determination activist back to Nigeria while ruling that Igboho be remanded in prison pending further judgement.
