Sunday Igboho Transferred to New Detention Facility in Benin Republic

The Benin Republic Court has ordered that Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, should be be transferred to another detention facility.

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

Point News 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 the new detention facility is yet to be disclosed, it has been gathered that the activist would possibly be moved to Cotonou Civil Prison.

The Benin Republic Court has also ordered that Igboho be returned to police custody pending further investigation.
