Medical report, others expected to secure Sunday bond Igboho – Lawyer

Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho) is eagerly awaiting an official medical report and other necessary documents for his lawyers to file a bail application on his behalf.

According to The Punch, one of the 11 lawyers expected to represent Igboho said members of the legal team had decided to file a strong bail application which would not be denied by the court.



The lawyer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “Preliminary reports we are receiving from the medical team show that Igboho is in need of medical attention. They said he seemed physically strong, but his condition was not improving. He was limping during Monday’s procedure.

“We are awaiting an official report. It’s part of what we’ll be presenting for his bail application.

Igboho and his wife were arrested on Monday, July 19, 2021 by the International Criminal Police Organization at Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Republic of Benin, while traveling to Germany. His wife was later released, while Igboho has been in detention ever 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 placed on the Interpol watch list.

When contacted, one of the lawyers for the Yoruba nation agitator, Olasupo Ojo, said the lawyers were weighing different choices on the Igboho case.

However, he declined to give a specific date for the filing of the bail application for the activist, who faces new charges.

Ojo said: “The original allegations are dead. We have achieved the goal we set for ourselves in the first place – to stop the illegal extradition of Sunday Igboho.

“We have different options that we are considering apart from applying for bail. I cannot divulge these options now.

” He is fine. The doctors saw it. His wife also brings him food. His right as a prisoner is respected. His lawyers also have access to him. We have no problem.

On Igboho’s health condition, the lawyer said, “He has nothing to complain about now. It is supported. »
