See conditions for Sunday Igboho’s release from Benin prison

The Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, on Monday announced the release of detained Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Igboho from a Benin Republic prison on medical grounds, but lawyer explained that there are conditions attached to his release.

Part of the conditions is that Igboho would not hold any rally and would not leave Cotonou.

Igboho’s lawyer, Yomi Aliyyu, SAN, confirmed that Igboho has been asked not to leave the medical centre or Cotonou.

Aliyyu told the media that “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.

Igboho, who escaped from a deadly raid on his Ibadan residence by the operatives of the Department of State Service on July 1, 2021, was arrested in Benin Republic on his way to Germany on July 19 together with his wife, Ropo. His wife was released soon after.
