The lead counsel to detained Yoruba Nation Activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, Yomi Aliyu (SAN) has revealed that his client may be battling with either kidney or lungs problem.
Aliyu disclosed this in an interview with BBC Yoruba, adding that Igboho developed the illness in Benin Republic prison custody.
According to him, the agitator has also been critically ill and rushed to the hospital for treatment.
The lawyer, who raised the alarm that Igboho needed urgent medical attention, said: “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.”
