One of the lawyers of Chief Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho has disclosed that the Yoruba Nations agitator has been reportedly diagnosed with possible kidney or lungs illness in Benin Republic.
This was made known by one of his lawyers identified as Yomi Aliyu while speaking with BBC Yoruba about the agitator’s developing illness.
Aliyu said the rights activist developed the illness in Benin Republic prison custody.
According to Aliyu, the agitator who is critically ill, was rushed to the hospital for treatment.
The lawyer raised the alarm that Igboho needed urgent medical attention.
According to him: “Igboho was not diagnosed with this sickness before he was arrested in Cotonou. It was so critical that they had to rush him to the hospital.
“I can’t tell if he has been returned to the prison from the hospital but what I know is, he’s battling ill health and it seems his kidney and lungs are already being affected.
“Even though I cannot tell which part of his body the sickness has really affected, I know it has to do with his internal organs.”
The development has also been confirmed by eources in the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua.
One of the sources said: “Yes, he is ill and his kidney appears affected. We are not very sure yet. Another test result is expected for confirmation. We are working on that and I can assure you that he is in safe hands,”.
When contacted, the spokesperson for Ilana Oodua, Maxwell Adeleye, said: “Expect our reaction soon. But the government should be warned that nothing must happen to Igboho.”
