IBADAN – Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), lead counsel to the embattled Yoru­ba rights activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho, on Wednes­day disclosed that the Yoruba right activist is now critically ill in Cotonou, Benin Republic.

Chief Alliyu (SAN) stated this in Ibadan while speaking on a report monitored on the BBC by Daily Independent on Sunday Igboho’s health condi­tion in Cotonou.

The legal luminary con­firmed that it was true that Chief Adeyemo Igboho was critically ill and was taken to the hospital in Cotonou for medical attention.

He maintained that report reaching him was that one of his (Igboho’s) organs might have been affected as a result of injuries he sustained when he reportedly fell down while attempting to escape from the hands of armed gunmen that invaded his Soka residence in Ibadan on July 1, this year.

Chief Alliyu said the Yoru­ba activist has already applied to the Republic of Benin au­thorities to allow him seek bet­ter medical attention in either France or Germany as a result of his failing health.
