Pay Sunday Igboho 20m CFA, ECOWAS orders Benin


The Community Court of Justice of the Economic Community of West African States has ordered the government of Benin to pay Yoruba Nation activist Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, 20 million CFA francs for violating his fundamental human rights and unlawful detention.

According to Tribune Online, the unanimous judgment was delivered by Justices Gberi-Bé Ouattara, Sengu M. Koroma, and Ricardo Claúdio Monteiro Goncalves in the matter marked: ECW/CCJ/APP/15/22, Chief Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho) vs. Republic of Benin.

The court also ordered Benin to comply with the payment order within three months and report back with evidence.

Igboho, arrested in Cotonou in 2021 while trying to leave for Germany, had fled Nigeria after being declared wanted by the Department of State Services following a raid on his Ibadan residence.
