Igboho Diagnosed With Kidney Problem In Benin Republic Prison

Following the arrest and detention of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called Sunday Igboho, it has been reported that the activist has been diagnosed with possible kidney or lung illness.

Thi was reportedly disclosed by one of his lawyers, Yomi Aliyu, in an interview with BBC Yoruba, adding that the rights activist developed the illness in Benin Republic prison custody.

Aliyu stated that, “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.”

He continued that, “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.”

The lawyer added that, “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.”

Meanwhile, the Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua, reportedly confirmed the development, disclosing that, “Yes, he is ill and his kidney appears affected. We are not very sure yet. Another test result is expected for confirmation. We are working on that and I can assure you that he is in safe hands.”
