The Beninese Court has remanded Sunday Igboho after fresh charges were filed against him on Monday.
Speaking with BBC, one of the Benin-Republic-based lawyers, Ibrahim Salami, said they were confronted with a fresh charge instead of the extradition charges.
He said: “the judge ruled that Sunday Igboho entered into the Benin Republic through illegal means. They also want to investigate how Sunday Igboho conspired with others to enter Benin Republic through wrong means.
“They also want to know how long he has been in Benin republic and his plans in the country. They also raised a charge on whether he wants to come and cause unrest or social disturbance in the Benin Republic,” Salami said.
