Before the hearing, Salami had said that the legal team was expecting extradition charges from the Nigerian government against the activist. However, he said Sunday Igboho was confronted with fresh charges when he appeared in court.

He noted that Igboho was further remanded to allow police conduct a thorough investigation into the charges, which included illegal migration, dubious connivance with immigration officers and an attempt to cause civil unrest.

“First, the judge wanted to know how Sunday Igboho entered into the Benin Republic through an illegal means. They also want to investigate how Sunday Igboho conspired with others to enter Benin Republic through wrong means.

“They also want to know how long he has been in Benin Republic and his plans in the country. They also raised a charge on whether he wants to come and cause unrest or social disturbance in Benin Republic,” the lawyer said in an interview with BBC Yoruba.

Some of the allegations, which he said could not be proved, included trafficking in arms, inciting violence that could result in social disturbance and causing disunity in Nigeria.

MEANWHILE, a Yoruba self-determination group, Yoruba Koya Liberation Movement (YKLM), has told President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami; former Chief of Army Staff and Nigeria’s Ambassador to Benin Republic, Tukur Buratai and other top government officials allegedly behind current travail of Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Igboho, in the Republic of Benin, to desist.
