The arrest of Sunday Igboho, the Yoruba Nation agitator has a new twist added to it yesterday as his lawyers had found out that that the Nigerian Government did not file any case against Igboho. It was the Government of Benin Republic that charged Igboho for entering their country illegally with the aim of committing heinous crime against the country.
This information was revealed by Igboho’s lawyer Ibrahim Bamidele Salami.
He said: “I was shocked when Sunday Igboho was sent to Benin Prison yesterday. When we started this case last week, the Prosecutor told us it was Nigerian Government he had a case with but yesterday, we realised that the Nigerian Government don’t even file any case against Igboho. The case he has, as the Judges told us, is with the Benin Republic Government.
“The Government of Benin Republic said Igboho entered their country improperly with the aim of committing heinous crime against the country, he was asked to mention those who accommodated him and drove him to the Airport but Igboho said he ran for his life in Nigeria and he didn’t commit any crime. The Judges weren’t convinced, he said Igboho should be transferred to prison until all those involved in his activities in Benin Republic are apprehended.
“Investigation is still ongoing”
