Defenders of Yoruba secessionist agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as “Sunday Igboho” are perfectly fine if he dies in Benin Republic rather than being extradited to Nigeria.
This was noted by his lawyer, Ibrahim David Salami, on Saturday, while speaking in an interview with BBC Yoruba monitored by NewsWireNGR.
Salami, a Beninese Yoruba and law lecturer vowed that everything would be done to ensure that Igboho is not extradited to Nigeria.
“It is better for him to die here in Benin than extradited to Nigeria,” he said.
“With all that happened in his house and how the army is threatening him, allowing for his extradition will amount to sending him home to death.
“Rather than do that, it would be better to keep him in Benin and kill him than to let him go to Nigeria to be slaughtered like an animal.
“That has been our struggle and agitation here in Benin.”
