One of the supporters said Igboho and his wife, Ropo looked pale.

“Rosa (Igboho) is here. We are about to start the hearing. His case has been caused. There is a tension here.”

“He is in court with his wife. The hearing will commence shortly,” the National Chairman of Ilana Omo Oodua, Prof Wale Adeniran, told our correspondent at 03.18 pm.”

One of the supporters, Alabi Mojeed Ajeleye, said Igboho bravery is a morale booster for many Yoruba rights activists.

He said, “We are here because of Sunday Igboho. We don’t want him to be extradited to Nigeria. He has been the one fighting for the rights of Yoruba people in Nigeria from killer herdsmen.

“They already attacked his home and killed his people. What is the Nigerian government looking for again?

“They have not released those arrested and we have not heard anything and you expect us to allow the Benin Republic to leave this one again.

“They have not released those arrested and we have not heard anything and you expect us to allow the Benin Republic to leave this one again.

“Those of us in Benin that are Yoruba indigenes feel relieved hearing his name. He is a form of encouragement for us. Please let him remain in Benin or allow him to go to Germany. He will be killed in Nigeria and nobody will be encouraged to fight for the people again. We don’t want him to be killed like MKO Abiola.”

Another supporter, Mikail Ajibade, urged the Benin Republic government not to extradite Igboho.

“We appeal to Benin Republic government that everything should be settled in Cotonou. We don’t want Igboho to be killed. They may torture him to death. He has been letting peace reign in Yorubaland,” he added.
