Why Sunday Igboho Was Earlier Chained in Beninese Custody, Legal Counsel

One of the legal counsel to the detained Yoruba Nation Advocate, Olusegun Falola, has shed more light on the reason his client, Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho was chained after he was arrested in Cotonou adding that, the Beninese security resorted to such action owing to his mystical power.

Falola let this out in an interview with feelrightnewsTV obtained by The Nation.

“When I arrived from Paris at the custody where Igboho was detained, he was first chained. They were scared that he could just disappear into the thin air because of his mystical powers.

“The police told me that if Igboho’s chains were untied and he escapes mysteriously, he (police officer) will be stripped of his rank and also dismissed.

“The police officer said he was told that Igboho could disappear or turn into a cat, and many other things were said to the police officers which made them tie him.”

He noted it took his timely intervention for the officers to unchain him and allow him (Igboho) walk freely, explaining Igboho did not commit any offence but he is just a human rights activist.

Giving an update on Igboho’s case, Falola assured he is safe in the Benin Republic.

He said: “The case will make revelations as to which government is powerful in Africa, our government may not be wealthy, and not much in population as compared to Nigeria but there is a signed treaty that must be respected.

“Igboho cannot be left to return back to Nigeria for now because of the destruction of his properties that was witnessed, they are not looking for Sunday Igboho alone but planning to kill him.

“They are looking for how to kill him and that’s very dangerous to allow him return back to Nigeria. So he is being kept safe in custody.”

Although the investigation is still ongoing, Falola explained he is monitoring the developments going on in Nigeria before any application for Igboho’s freedom in court can be made.

He added that if Igboho is released, He may proceed to Germany to see his children and family.

“This case has become a global one with many watching the developments, all Yorubas especially in Diaspora, monarchs, traditionalists, others are keenly following the case,” Falola stated.
