The Counsel to Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, Chief Yomi Alliyu says Igboho would appear before a court in Benin today for an extradition order.
Alliyu however noted that the extradition order being sought by the Nigerian authorities may not sail through, given the status of Igboho as a political offender.
Aliyu alleged that his client is going through harrowing torture and pains, having been put in chains in a police cell in Cotonou, the capital of Republic of Benin.
Igboho was arrested on Monday by the security forces at an airport in Cotonou while trying to flee to Germany.
He had earlier been declared a fugitive by the Department of State Services (DSS) and asked to turn himself in.
