Benin Republic has brought up fresh charges against Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

Igboho was apprehended at the Cotonou Airport in the country last Monday.

One of the lawyers representing Igboho, Ibrahim Salami, confirmed the new charges after Monday’s hearing, after which Igboho was ordered to remain in custody.

These charges include illegal migration, dubious connivance with immigration officers and an attempt to cause civil unrest.

Salami had expected that Igboho would be freed on Monday, as the Federal Government of Nigeria had yet to file formal extradition charges against Igboho.

He explained that the previous allegations that warranted placing Igboho on a watchlist had successfully been tackled during the hearing.
