The embattled Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has been returned to cell in Benin Republic.
The development followed the decision of the Court D’Appeal in Cotouno to adjourn the hearing on his extradition to Friday, July 23, 2021.
Igboho’s wife, a German who was arrested alongside her husband at an airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic was however released.
Candidreporters.com gathered that there was uncertainty on Thursday evening when the hearing began at the Cour De’appal De Cotonou.
Igboho arrived the court at about 5pm on Thursday evening.
The separatist activist is believed to have been arraigned on immigration-related offences.
After the adjournment, neither Igboho’s lawyers nor the Beninese counsel spoke on what transpired in the court.
Igboho and his wife have been in custody since their arrest at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou, as they attempted to board a flight to Germany on Monday.
They were interrogated by Beninese security operatives at the Brigade Criminelle facility between Wednesday and Thursday.
Olayomi Koiki, media aide to Igboho, had earlier said the outcome of the court hearing will be favourable.
