Contrary to wide reports that Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, his counsel, Mr Yomi Alliyu said he’s not released.
According to Aliyu; “Igboho has not been released, he was only released to be taken to the hospital. The last time we spoke, I told you that we are making arrangements to take care of his health.
“So, he was released based on health grounds.”
He also noted that Igboho was released from “prison to his medical practitioners under the agreement that he should not leave the medical centre or Cotonou for any reason.
“Praises should be given to two prominent Yoruba personalities to wit: Prof. Wole Soyinka and Prof. Akintoye for this turn around in our client’s matter,” he said.
The incarceration of Igboho in the Republic of Benin had been extended by six months after spending the initial six months in prison.
Meanwhile, reports claiming the release of the activist said he was released to the leader of the Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Professor Banji Akintoye, and a French Language Expert/Deputy leader of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Professor Wale Adeniran.
Akintoye, in a statement by the Communications Secretary to Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Mr Maxwell Adeleye, described the release of Ighoho as a “triumph of truth over darkness in Yoruba Land.”
