Sunday Igboho Down with Kidney Ailment, Lawyer Raises Alarm


Embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, has been reportedly diagnosed with possible kidney or lungs illness in Benin Republic.


Yomi Aliyu, one of the lawyers of the agitator, told BBC Yoruba about the agitator’s developing illness, stating that 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.


The lawyer also revealed in a BBC interview that “when his house in Nigeria was attacked, he sustained a serious wound at the right arm probably when he was escaping from the attack…”


“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.”
