Many supporters of the Yoruba nation all over the world have been agitating and seeking justice for the Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Igboho, since his arrest in Benin Republic.
Some Nigerian residents in Benin Republic have gathered at the court premises today to witness the repatriation trial.
Some have also taken to their social media to vent their views about the issue and called on the Beninese government not to hand over Igboho to the Nigerian government.
Sola O. Sola said:”The man hasn’t committed any crime to warrant his repatriation. The govt. of Nigeria is hypocritical- those who are criminals are being shielded, but they are busy chasing the innocent ones. The whole world is watching and God is watching too”
Mauris Iweriebor said: “Igboho is innocent. Buhari should go after the killer and raping herdsmen.”
Olayinka Wole said: “Dankeremi and buji are there in zamfara forest nobody goes for them they are proud to pronounce fire for fire but the innocent have been hurt down oh my country Nigeria.
Fricky Friday Damini said: “He has done absolutely nothing wrong!.. the Nigerian government is the one who made him decide to leave the country… his life was being threatened… how could they go to his house in the middle of the night and attempt to kill him there?..they destroyed his properties, killed two of his men.. arrested and harassed some of them…who wouldn’t run away if they were in his shoes.. and what was their offence.. Because they demanded for their freedom.. Everyone knows self determination ain’t a crime.. even the Nigerian government have a question to answer concerning this issue…”
