The Republic of Benin has been ordered to Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho the sum of 20 million CFA for unlawful detention.
The order was given by a three-member Panel of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Court of Justice.
Benin Republic, the court said, should pay the money within three months.
Recall that on February 10, Igboho applied to the court to challenge his arrest and detention in the French-speaking country.
According to the court, Benin Republic should also comply with its order and revert to the court with evidence of payment.
The Yoruba Nation agitator was arrested with his wife, Ropo, in Cotonou, Benin Republic, and detained at the request of the Nigerian government.
He ran away from the country after the Department of State Services (DSS) raided his residence in Ibadan, Oyo State on July 1.
