Benin Republic holds Sunday Igboho, only released him from prison

Sunday Adeyemo, popular Yoruba nation activist, aka Sunday Igboho, has been released from detention on health grounds but not freed by the Bennenois government.

According to his lawyer, Chief Yomi Aliyyu, SAN, said two of the condition were that Igboho should not leave the medical centre or Cotonou.

He said, “I am to inform all the followers of Chief Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Igboho Oosa that he has been released from prison to his medical practitioners under the agreement that he should neither leave the medical centre nor Cotonou for any reason.

“Praises should be given to two prominent Yoruba personalities — Prof Wole Soyinka and Prof Akintoye for this turnaround in our client’s matter.”

Aliyyu had on Thursday announced that Igboho had begun fresh negotiation with the Benin Republic government over his health status.

He explained that Igboho negotiated to be moved to another detention facility over his health status.
