Igboho: We know nothing about trial – ECOWAS Court

ECOWAS Community Court of Justice said that it has no idea on the trial of Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho in the Benin Republic.

It added that the court only involves itself with civil matters brought before it.

Deputy President of the court, Justice Gberi-be Quatarra, represented by a member of the court, Justice Dupe Atoki, spoke with reporters in Ilorin, Kwara state capital at the end of the court’s one-week sensitization mission.

Justice Quatarra said: “Obviously, there has been no complaint about supposed Sunday Igboho before the court and for all intents and purposes, the court has no idea of who Sunday Igboho is and what’s happening to him.

“Sunday Igboho, for us on this side of the divide here we don’t know what that is. We have no clue of who or what is happening to Sunday Igboho. The majority of the leadership of the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice are not Nigeriens. I am like the only Nigerian and for judicial purposes, I do not know who Sunday Igboho is or what’s his challenge.

“The court is only concerned with matters that have been brought before it and if matters had not been brought before it we would just be a meddlesome interloper trying to fish out issues in the public domain and we are not tale guided by mere newspaper presentations. We don’t read the newspaper to determine whether we should intervene or not.”
