The Benin Court of Appeal has jail Sunday Igboho for association criminality pending the finalisation of his appeal on charges
The court, however, declined immediate extradition of Igboho to Nigeria.
The Court, which was expected to start hearing the case at 10:00 am, chose to ban Journalists and supporters of Igboho who thronged the court premises as early as 7:30 am when it commenced sitting at about 5:00 pm.
This court decision means Igboho will have to wait until an investigation is concluded.
This recent development comes just weeks after news reports emerged about him travelling abroad
