Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), the lead counsel of Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has revealed that his client is critically ill.
The lawyer said the agitator, who is detained by the government of Benin Republic since July, had been taken to the hospital in Cotonou for medical attention.
Alliyu claimed that Igboho’s kidney and lungs may have been damaged while trying to escape during the July 1 invasion of his Soka, Ibadan home by operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS)
Why Sunday Igboho Needs Medical Attention Abroad
The Lawyer said, “Igboho was not diagnosed with this sickness before he was arrested in Cotonou. It was so critical that they had to convey him to a hospital.
“I can’t tell if he has been returned to the prison from the hospital, but what I know is, he’s battling ill health and it seems his kidney and lungs are already being affected.
“Even though I cannot tell which part of his body the sickness has really affected, I know it has to do with his internal organs.”
The lawyer said Igboho had applied to the Republic of Benin authorities to allow him seek better medical attention in either France or Germany.
KanyiDaily recalls that Sunday Igboho’s lawyer had revealed that the agitator won’t return to Nigeria until the end of President Buhari’s administration.
