Malami: Sunday Igboho Will Return To the Benin Republic After Prosecution
NewsReport gathered that after Sunday Igboho’s trial in the Benin Republic, Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has stated that the Federal Government will bring back embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho, to Nigeria.
The AGF appeared on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ program on Monday, which was watched by The PUNCH.
Igboho escaped to the neighboring francophone country in July 2021 after being declared wanted by the Department of State Services for allegedly stockpiling guns to destabilize Nigeria, a charge he rejected.
However, his luck ran out as he was apprehended by Interpol at a Benin airport while attempting to board a trip to Germany.
He had since been remanded in a prison in the Benin Republic for over six months where he is said to be facing trial for immigration-related offenses, amongst others.
Commenting on Igboho’s ordeal on Monday, Malami said the case is a matter being prosecuted at the foreign country on account of breaching laws in the Benin Republic.
The AGF said, “We’ll allow the law of a nation that was indeed breached takes its natural cause and then perhaps indeed thereafter bring him (Igboho) back home after the conclusion of the trial for the purpose of facing the Nigerian law that was accordingly breached.
