Igboho develops kidney-related ailment in Cotonou, says counsel


Lead counsel to the detained Yoruba Nation activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho), Chief Yomi Alliyu, SAN, Wednesday raised the alarm that the activist was critically ill in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

Alliyu, who made the disclosure while speaking on BBC News monitored in Ibadan, said Igboho was battling with failure of his vital organ and taken to the hospital in Cotonou for medical attention.

He maintained that report reaching him was that one of his ( Igboho’s) organs might have been affected as a result of injuries he sustained when he reportedly fell while attempting to escape from the hands of the gunmen that invaded his Soka residence in Ibadan on July 1, this year.

According to him, the Yoruba activist had already applied to the Republic of Benin authorities to allow him seek better medical attention in either France or Germany as a result of his failing health.
