JUST IN: Tension over delay in Igboho’s trial
Tension is building up in the premises of the Court of Appeals in Cotonou among hundreds of supporters of Yoruba Nation agitator aka Sunday Igboho over delay in his trial.
As early as 7am, many supporters from Nigeria as well as those in Benin Republic besieged the court to identify with the Yoruba nation activist.
But trial has not started as at 2.54pm despite the fact that Igboho has been kept in one of the prosecutors’ rooms since early hours of Monday.
While some of his supporters are optimistic he will be freed,some of them are exhibiting unruly tendencies.
Frustrated by the delay, some of Igboho’s supporters are venting anger on anyone who takes pictures or records videos of events in the court premises, including journalists.
