“Even though I can’t determine which area of his body the sickness has actually damaged, I know it has to do with his internal organs.” I can’t tell if he’s been returned to prison from the hospital, but I do know he’s battling bad health and it appears his kidney and lungs are already being affected.

FIJ had reported how Igboho was arrested, alongside his wife, in Cotonou, Benin Republic, on July 16, 2021, on his way to Germany.
