Sunday Igboho Floats $1m Suit Against Benin Republic Over His Detention In Benin

The secessionist Sunday Adeyemo, who is looking for the Yoruba Nation (aka) Sunday Igboho, has floated a $1 million (US) suit against the Republic of Benin for general damages over his detention in Benin, before the Community Court of Justice, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in Abuja. He is demanding the court for an order awarding him general damages in an amount equivalent to $1,000,000 (U.S.) for the violation of his human right by the Republic.

Igboho, after being raided at his Soka Ibadan home on July 1, 2021, by operatives of the Department of State Services had escaped to the Benin Republic en route to Germany but was arrested by the operatives of the Brigade Criminelle on July 19, 2021. Igboho, through his lawyer Mr Tosin Ojaomo, sought a declaration that Benin’s actions regarding his unlawful, arbitrary arrest and detention, violated his freedom of movement, right to an unbiased trial within a reasonable time, and dignity of the human person.

He said the order sought is pursuant to Article 59 of Rules of Procedure, an Expedited Procedure and Hearing, regarding the imprisonment and release of Chief Adeyemo. Ojaomo, in the application dated February 10, 2022, sought an order for the immediate and unconditional release of Chief Adeyemo, along with his Nigerian passport, pending litigation and determination on damages.
