In Republic Of benin, Yoruba kings meet over Igboho.

 According to the Benin Republic's PUNCH, Yoruba monarchs convened on Sunday to discuss the arrest and custody of Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.

The gathering is taking place in the palace of a powerful monarch in Adjohoun, roughly 60 kilometers from Ajase.

Alajashe of Ajase from Port Novo, Alajohoun of Adjohoun, and a representative of the Oba of Benin are among those who attended the conference.

After his five lawyers failed to persuade the prosecutor that he had no case to answer, the Beninese court deferred Igboho's case until Monday.

Ropo, the agitator's wife, was arrested with the 48-year-old activist on Monday, July 19, 2021, at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Republic of Benin, on their route to Germany by the International Criminal Police Organization.

Igboho, for his part, was returned to police custody.

During the court, prosecutors claimed Igboho was on a watchlist for alleged arms trafficking, encouraging violence that might cause societal unrest, and fostering divisiveness in Nigeria, according to the lawyers.
