Igboho’s German wife released in Benin

Ropo Adeyemo, the German wife of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, has been set free by the Cour De’appal De Cotonou, Benin Republic, where her husband is presently docked.

According to PMNews, while the court adjourned the hearing till Friday (tomorrow) and remanded Sunday Igboho, it ordered his wife to be released from custody three days after they were arrested just before boarding a flight for Germany in Cotonou.

Igboho was also arrested for being in possession of a Beninese passport despite not being a citizen.

It is not immediately clear if this was the same case heard by the court on Thursday or whether it was the extradition case.

Both husband and wife were brought to court today.

Meanwhile, online news medium SaharaReporters quoted an unnamed official as saying that the court also ruled that all travel documents of the wife and Igboho’s children seized from the duo should be returned to her.

“They just finished from the court. The wife is to be released this night and Sunday is to remain in custody. The matter was adjourned till Friday,” the official said.

The Nigerian government is still working to have Igboho extradited after he was declared wanted following the raid on his Ibadan residence earlier this month.
