BREAKING: Sunday Igboho will be released soon – Lawyer

Pelumi Olajengbesi, an Abuja-based human rights lawyer, has intimated that Yoruba Nation activist Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho may be released from jail shortly.

Although Olajengbesi has subsequently resigned from the Nigerian legal team representing Igboho, he cautioned Yoruba leaders not to be self-centered.

Igboho has been detained in the Benin Republic since July 2020, when he was apprehended at an airport in Cotonou by West Africa’s country Security Forces while attempting to flee to Germany.

Despite frantic efforts to get him released, The Nation has discovered that he has spent more than 201 days in a Benin Republic jail.

A Beninise court blocked the extradition of Igboho to Nigeria while ruling that the activist be remanded in prison pending further hearing.

His supporters have expressed worries over prolonged stay in detention.

Many groups, including Agbekoya Farmers Society and the Diaspora Groups have staged protests to demand the ‘unconditional’ release of Igboho.

“He is no doubt a courageous MAN.

“This is very authoritative just that our Yoruba leaders should stop being selfish and allow good to prevail.”
