According to report gathered, the Yoruba Nation activist was returned back to cell after a 13-hour hearing, which ended around 11:20 pm on Monday.
The case was heard behind closed doors as the court limited attendance to lawyers, Igboho’s wife, Ropo, and a few others.
According to report, Igboho would not be set free. “The problem is with the extradition, and there is a lot of politics going on”.
This simply means there would not be any form of immediate extradition of the Yoruba youth leader, who has been declared wanted by the Nigeria government.
It is not clear yet if a political solution will be reached between both states or not.
Igboho’s supporters, Journalists, and monarchs who came to court for for hearing were denied access to witness his hearing.
They then hung around the court premises until about 7 pm when armed security operatives came to court to eject anyone who was not a person of interest.
Recall that sunday Igboho and his wife, Ropo, were arrested at an airport in Cotonou last week Monday and detained at the request of the Nigerian government.
His lawyers requested the release of his wife on the grounds that she had committed no offense against the Nigerian state.
On Thursday, the court answered the prayers and ordered her release and a return of her passport.
Igboho was taken to detention, where he has been up until Monday.
The charges against the Yoruba Nation activist border on arms smuggling, inciting violence, and calling for a secession of the Yoruba from the Nigerian state.
Igboho and his lawyers have denied all allegations leveled against him.
