Following desperate moves by the federal government to extradite popular Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Igboho, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Benin Republic, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai (retd.), has met with the President of the French-speaking West African nation, Patrice Talon.

Buratai met with the Beninese President on Tuesday during the official presentation of his letter of credence, The News Guru reports.

DECENCY GLOBAL NEWS reports that following his arrest by INTERPOL on July 19, 2021, Igboho has been in detention in Cotonou, Benin Republic Republic.

A member of Igboho’s legal team, Pelumi Olajengbesi, had said Buratai asked for the extradition of Igboho to the headquarters of the Department of State Services in Abuja, Nigeria but the Benin Republic has refused to bow to pressure.

Buratai, Nigeria’s former Chief of Army Staff, was deployed as Nigeria’s envoy to the Benin Republic in June 2021.

In a statement, the Beninese Government said Talon granted audience to each of the new ambassadors and discussed with them on the revitalization and strengthening of bilateral cooperation between these different countries and Benin.

Talon was also said to have received a brief update on the state of cooperation between Benin, Nigeria and the other countries.

“The President of the Republic also took the opportunity to invite the new Ambassadors to work more on consolidating and strengthening the warm relations that already exist between their countries and Benin,” the statement added.

It was, however, not clear whether or not Buratai discussed Igboho’s extradition with the Beninese President.
