While his wife was freed for not having no case to answer on Thursday court hearing, the Yoruba nation activist was odered to be kept in the cell till today Friday when the case was reopened and again readjourned till Monday.

Igboho is facing a charge of using a forged Beninese passport.

Meanwhile, the Media Communications Secretary of the Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, in a statement, said the suit against the activist was adjourned to enable the Nigerian Government present evidence for demand for Igboho’s extradition to Nigeria.

The statement read: “The lawyers handling the case reported after the proceedings that Chief Sunday Adeyemo lgboho cannot be extradited to Nigeria for two principal reasons:

“The first is that Nigeria and Benin have no Extradition Agreement. Second, Nigeria has not been able to come up with charges that could lead the court to order lgboho’s extradition to Nigeria.

“What Nigerian Government came up with were mere allegations against Ighoho such as trafficking in arms and inciting violence that could result in the social disturbance without evidence.”
