The Republic of Benin has relaxed security around Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly called Sunday Igboho, removing the leg chains and handcuff as well as granted his wife, Ropo, access to meet him thrice daily.
Also, the West African nation approved the request of Sunday Igboho’s legal team that the suspect should be allowed to undergo a medical checkup and that it should be done by his personal physician.
The approval was confirmed by his legal team through a statement released by Communications Manager, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), Maxwell Adeleye, and made available to newsmen on Monday.
They, meanwhile, stressed that Sunday Igboho was not under any immigration-related probe in Benin Republic and that all the activists was been queried and arraigned for were that he was allegedly buying and stockpiling ammunition as well as inciting Nigerians against the government.
The statement reads in part: “We urge supporters from Nigeria not to bother coming to the court premises in Bénin. Kindly stay in Nigeria and support with prayers and whatever you can do within the ambit of the law. We are confident that Chief Igboho shall be set free”.
