 Benin Republic To Consider Igboho’s Asylum Request Next Week

The request for asylum made by Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a Sunday Igboho, may be considered by authorities of the Republic of Benin next week.

This was disclosed by one of the Lawyers, Olasupo Ojo, who said, though there was no official statement from the Government of Benin Republic on the asylum request, the decision would probably be made known within the week.

Sunday Igboho had sought asylum in the Republic of Benin in July, 2021, after his arrest on Monday, July 19, 2021, by the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun airport in Cotonou, republic of Benin.

His Lawyers said application for his bail was delayed pending the outcome of the request; adding that they were desperate to ensure that he remained outside the shores of Nigeria.
