Sunday Igboho critically ill, rushed to hospital in Benin

Frontline Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho has been rushed to a hospital in Benin Republic as he is critically ill.

He is reportedly diagnosed with likely kidney or lungs illness, Yomi Aliyyu, one of his lawyers has disclosed.

He spoke in an interview with BBC Yoruba on Wednesday.

According to him, Igboho was not diagnosed with this sickness before he was arrested in Cotonou.

He said the situation was so critical that they had to rush him to the hospital.

Aliyyu said it started with an undiagnosed disease, and that “the disease is so serious that he had to be taken to hospital regularly.”

He said he could not say for sure if he had been returned to the prison yard from the hospital, but said what he did know was that his body was not torn, and that it looked like the disease is affecting his kidneys and lungs.

Aliyyu added that even though he could not tell which part of his body the sickness had really affected, he knew it had to do with his internal organs.

Igboho had been in Benin Republic prison for three months now.

He was arrested in Benin while trying to flee to Germany to seek asylum as he was declared wanted in Nigeria by the government.

Before he fled Nigeria, his Ibadan home was invaded by the Department of State Services (DSS) with two of his men killed and 12 others arrested, while he managed to escape.
