Ibrahim Salami, one of the Benin Republic-based lawyers of embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has condemned the now-viral leaked audio where Igboho faulted his legal team.
Igboho, in the leaked audio, said he was ready to return to Nigeria adding that he is no longer scared of returning to Nigeria and that if the Benin Republic government wanted to return him to Nigeria, they should go ahead.
Igboho also lamented that he had been in Benin for almost two months and the lawyers did not do enough to secure his release.
But reacting, Salami on Wednesday said, Igboho was angry with him and other members of the legal team because he felt he had no reason to remain in detention.
“He wants things to be done faster,” Salami told the Nation Newspaper.
Checks revealed that Igboho has spent close to two months in detention since he was ‘arrested’ by the operatives of Brigade criminelle (Criminal Brigade) on July 19 in Cotonou.
The 48-year-old agitator who was first detained at the Brigade économique et financière (BEF), is currently at Prison Civile de Cotonou — Cotonou Civil Prison.
In the last judgment, the Cour De’appal De Cotonou ordered that Igboho should be kept in prison custody.
Salami in an interview with BBC explained that Igboho has a right to be angry with the way he was detained in custody.
“He has a right to be angry,” the lawyer added.
