The legal team of Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, is filing a bail application on his behalf due to his deteriorating health condition.

The Yoruba Nation agitator was said to have been injured when the Department of State Services (DSS) invaded his home, killing and arresting his aides indiscriminately.

Igboho was declared wanted by the secret police after escaping the raid on his residence and was put on Interpol’s watch list.

On July 19, Igboho and his wife were arrested at the Cadjèhoun Airport in the Republic of Benin, on their way to Germany. His wife would later be released from detention.

However, a member of the Igboho’s legal team told Punch how they have resolved to put up a strong bail application that would not be rejected by the court.

“Preliminary reports that we are getting from the medical team show that Igboho needs medical attention,” the Lawyer said. “They said he appears strong physically, but his state of health is not getting better. He was limping during Monday’s proceeding.”

Olasupo Ojo, the coordinating council for Igboho, said the initial allegations against the Yoruba Nation agitator are dead.

“We have achieved the purpose that we set out to achieve in the first place – to stop the illegal extradition of Sunday Igboho,” Ojo said.

“We have different options that we are considering apart from applying for bail. I cannot disclose those options now.”
