This was made known in a statement on Friday by the Communications Manager of Ilana Omo Oodua, Maxwell Adeleye.
According to the group spokesperson, Sunday Igboho’s case has been adjourned till Monday 26th July to allow the Nigerian Government to bring up whatever evidence they may have.
He said: “What Nigerian Government came up with were mere allegations against Ighoho such as trafficking in arms and inciting violence that could result in the social disturbance without evidence which the Government of Benin Republic considered spurious and untenable, and insufficient to warrant extradition.
“Lastly, the case has been adjourned till Monday 26th July to allow the Nigerian Government to bring up whatever evidence they may have, and Mr. lgboho has been taken back to the police custody.”
Sunday Igboho is currently being tried for immigration-related offences and obtaining a Beninise passport without being a citizen.
Meanwhile, his wife Ropo who was arrested alongside with him was ordered by the same court to be released on Thursday.
“Yes, she has been released,” the National Chairman of Ilana Omo Oodua, Prof Wale Adeniran confirmed.
After the hearing, the government lawyer didn’t address journalists.
Ìgbòho’s lawyer, Yomi Aliyu (SAN), explained that “this is not the best time to say anything on the case”.
