BREAKING: Sunday Igboho transferred to new detention facility in Benin Republic


Cour D’Appel De Cotonou has ordered that Yoruba Nation separatist leader, Sunday Igboho, should be transferred to another detention facility.

This is after the Igboho’s lawyer complained that his fundamental human rights were being abused.

The PUNCH had reported that Igboho had leg chain and hand-cuff on him.

But Ilana Omo Oodua in a statement in Monday morning said the leg chain and hand-cuff were later removed from him.

According to Ibrahim Salami, one of the Cotonou, Benin Republic-based lawyers of Sunday Igboho, the activist needed support to eat and use the toilet because of the hand-cuff.

Before the new order, Igboho was detained at Brigade Criminelle facility.

Though tbe new detention facility is yet to be disclosed, our correspondent gathered that the activist would possibly be moved to Cotonou Civil Prison.

Also, the Cour De’Appel De Cotonou returned Igboho to police custody pending further investigation.

The activist was returned to cell after a 13-hour hearing, which ended around 11:20 pm on Monday
