One of the lawyers for the Nigerian activist Sunday Adeyemo Igboho, in preventive detention “for the association of criminals preparing to commit crimes in Benin”, confirms that so far Nigeria, his client’s country of origin, has not formulated any extradition request for the separatist. He is also worried about his state of health.
There are no traces of a extradition request on behalf of Nigeria in the activist’s act, explains Me Ibrahim Salami, who draws attention to the state of health of his client who has been held in Cotonou civilian prison since the end of July. He’s bad, he explained to our correspondent’s microphone. Jean-Luc Aplogan, and wants to be evacuated to Germany for treatment.
“It goes from bad to worse, because when he fled death in Nigeria, he jumped up the stairs and injured his chest and arm. And since then he has never been treated. He asked permission to be treated, but it took a long time before we got an answer. She came today. This is only temporary care. He would have liked to go to Germany, because he has a residence card, a social insurance card and an insurance policy. He would like to return to Germany for safe treatment. He only asks for justice and the Beninese government. He has never been the subject of legal proceedings in Nigeria and adds that he does not violate either the Beninese legal system or the Beninese state. ”
