Barrister Olusegun Falola, one of the counsels to the popular Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemi, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has revealed that his client might not return to Nigeria for a long time after his trial in the Benin Republic as his life is under threat in Nigeria. 

“Igboho cannot be allowed to return to Nigeria for now because of the destruction of his properties that was witnessed. They are not looking for Sunday Igboho alone but planning to kill him.

“When I arrived from Paris at the custody where Igboho was detained, he was first chained. They were scared that he could just disappear into the thin air because of his mystical powers.

“The police told me that if Igboho’s chains were untied and he escapes mysteriously, he (police officer) will be stripped of his rank and also dismissed” because “he was told that Igboho could disappear or turn into a cat and many other things were said to the police officers which made them tie him,” Barr. Falola narrated during a chat with newsmen.

The lawyer noted that it took his timely intervention for the officers to unchain Igboho and allow him to walk freely. 

Falola who insisted the Igboho did not commit any offence but is just a human rights activist assured that his client is safe in the Benin Republic.

He said, “The case will make revelations as to which government is powerful in Africa, our government may not be wealthy and not much in population as compared to Nigeria but there is a signed treaty that must be respected.”
