As the Igboho saga continues to drag on, the Benin Republic government has slammed fresh charges against the Yoruba Nation agitator.
One of Sunday Igboho’s lawyers, Ibrahim Salami, told BBC Yoruba that the legal team was expecting extradition charges from the Nigerian government against the Yoruba activist.
Salami said Igboho was further remanded to prison custody to enable the Police conduct thorough investigation into these charges, which include illegal migration, dubious and questionable connivance with immigration officers which borders on corruption and an attempt to cause civil disturbance and unrest in Benin Republic.
“First, the judge wanted to know the way, means and manner that Sunday Igboho entered into the Country through illegal means which is against the law”. They also want to investigate how Sunday Igboho conspired with other agencies and officials to enter Benin Republic through unauthorized routes and procedures.
“The authorities are determined to establish the date, means of entry and the reason for Igboho’s visit to Benin Republic”.
The Benin Government on its fact finding mission would like to confirm Igboho’s intention and the possibility of his causing civil disturbance and unrest in their Country. This is the aftermath of the reports regarding Sunday Igboho’s entrails in his agitation for a Yoruba nation through various rallies organized in the SouthWest of Nigeria which were seen as capable of causing civil unrest and disturbance according to the Lagos State CP – Hakeem Odumosu.
Sunday Igboho has since been considered a threat to the peace of the Constituency.
