The Court D’Appal of Cotonou has ordered that Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho should be kept in prison custody pending investigation.
The court, however, declined immediate extradition of Igboho to Nigeria as demanded by the federal government.
The Court, which was expected to start hearing the case at 10:00am, chose to bar journalists and supporters of Igboho who stormed the court premises as early as 7:30am, when it commenced sitting at about 5:00pm.
It was gathered that supporters of Igboho were dispersed from the premises of Court later in the evening, prompting fears that he might be deported to Nigeria.
The federal government of Nigeria accused Igboho of trafficking in arms, inciting violence to disrupt the public peace and agitating for secession.
It also demanded for his immediate extradition to Nigeria.
Igboho and his wife, Ropo, were arrested at the Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou, last Monday while trying to catch a flight to Germany. .
