The fight to get a Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, released from detention has been delayed by the vacation embarked upon by judges in Benin Republic.

This is according to the spokesperson for the Umbrella body of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, Ilana Omo Oodua; Maxwell Adeleye.

Recall that the Beninese Court had ordered that Sunday Igboho should be returned to prison custody when he appeared before the court on July 27.

Prosecutors were also said to have raised fresh charges against the activist during the last sitting.

Igboho’s lawyers had said the Yoruba Nation agitator was further remanded to allow police to conduct a thorough investigation into the charges, which included illegal migration, dubious connivance with immigration officers, and an attempt to cause civil unrest.

They explained that the previous allegations that warranted placing Igboho on a watch list had successfully being tackled.
