The trial of self-styled Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a Sunday Igboho, continued yesterday behind ‘closed door’, with journalists and his supporters shut out.
It was gathered that his supporters thronged the Cour D’Appel De Cotonou, where he is being tried, but they were not allowed to gain entrance.
The report said Igboho’s supporters, which included the delegation sent by the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji were not allowed into the court’s premises.
Recall that Igboho was arrested by Interpol along with his wife on July 20, while trying to board a plane from Cotonou, Benin Republic to Germany. He was brought in court last Monday, with the case adjourned to Thursday last week. It was later adjourned till today.
The Federal Government is trying to get him extradited to Nigeria to face trial like Nnamdi Kanu. Several Yoruba leaders are battling to prevent his extradition to Nigeria as they felt he would not get justice.
