Chief Yomi Alliyu, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Counsel representing Igboho, made this known on Tuesday in Ibadan.
Alliyu, however, made clarification that it was Prof. Wale Adeniran and Prof. Banji Akintoye that facilitated Igboho’s release and not Prof. Wole Soyinka, as earlier reflected in his Monday’s statement.
According to him, Prof. Wale Adeniran meant, NOT Prof. Wole Soyinka, who had nothing to do with the release of Chief Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a Igboho Oosa.
Alliyu said: “His doctors have declared him hale and healthy.
“One of the conditions for his release is to stay in the Republic of Benin for the time being under full security. He is also hale and healthy.
“We will ever continue the immense contributions of Prof. Wale Adeniran for the laudable role he played in negotiating the conditional release of our client.”
Alliyu had on Monday said that Igboho’s release was under the agreement that he should not leave the medical centre or Cotonou for any reason.
“I am to inform you that Chief Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a Igboho, has been released from prison to his medical practitioners under the agreement that he should not leave the medical centre or Cotonou for any reason,” he said.
The incarceration of Igboho in the Republic of Benin had earlier been extended by six months after spending the initial six months in prison.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Igboho and his wife, Ropo, were arrested on Monday, July 19, 2021, by the International Criminal Police Organisation at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, the Republic of Benin on their way to Germany.
