The Benin Republic Government will determine on Thursday whether or not Sunday Adeyemo, the Yoruba Nation agitator popularly known as Sunday Igboho, will be extradited to Nigeria.

According to The Nation, Olayomi Koiki, Igboho’s spokesman, made this known during a live address, noting that the Benin  Republic Court will hold the hearing by 10 am. 

“I can confirm, he (Igboho) will have the opportunity to be heard at the Benin Republic court; they respect international law. It will be held today (Thursday) by God’s grace,” he said. 

“The sitting will be held at 10am at the Benin Republic court. The court will determine the fate of the extradition and we’ll also have the opportunity to present our case especially on the personality of Igboho.

“We know the magnitude of what the Nigerian government is trying to do if they try to get hold of Igboho but they will fail, by God’s grace.

“Their intention was to capture him (Igboho), but God fought for him.”
