Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho) legal team had resolved to put up a strong bail application that would not be declined by the Benin court.
Recall that Igboho is awaiting an official medical report and other necessary documents for his lawyers to file a bail application on his behalf.
However, a lawyer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity said, “Preliminary reports that we are getting from the medical team show that Igboho needs medical attention. They said he appears strong physically, but his state of health is not getting better. He was limping during Monday’s proceeding.
“We are awaiting an official report. That is part of what we will be presenting for his bail application.”
Igboho and his wife were arrested on Monday, July 19, 2021, by the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Republic of Benin, on their way to Germany. His wife was later released, while Igboho has been in detention since.
He was declared wanted by Nigeria’s Department of State Services when he fled during a raid on his Ibadan residence on July 1 and was put on the Interpol’s watch list.
