The Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, is set to be transferred to another detention facility following a court order.

The Cour D’Appel De Cotonou in the Benin Republic gave the order after Sunday Igboho’s lawyers raised concerns that his basic human rights were being abused.

Ibrahim Salami, one of the Cotonou, Benin Republic-based lawyers of Sunday Igboho, said the activist needed support to eat and use the toilet because of the hand-cuff.

Before the new order, Igboho was detained at Brigade Criminelle facility, Punch reports.

Though the new detention facility is yet to be disclosed, it was gathered that the activist would possibly be moved to a Cotonou Civil Prison.

The Ilana Omo Oodua, a Yoruba group, in a statement in Monday morning had said the leg chain and hand-cuff were later removed from him.

The Benin Republic police arrested Igboho two weeks ago the at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport in Cotonou, while trying to board a flight from the country to Germany.
