The Cour D’Appel De Cotonou in Benin Republic has ordered that Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho), be transferred to another detention facility.
After the activist’s lawyers claimed that his basic human rights were being violated, the judge agreed to this plea.
According to Ibrahim Salami, one of Sunday Igboho‘s lawyers in Cotonou, Benin Republic, the activist required assistance to eat and use the restroom due to the handcuffs.
According to Punch, Igboho was imprisoned at Brigade Criminelle prior to the new order.
Though the location of the new jail institution has not been revealed, it is believed that the activist would be transferred to a Cotonou Civil Prison.
The leg chain and handcuffs were later removed from him, according to a statement released by the Yoruba group Ilana Omo Oodua on Monday morning.
