Medical report, others delay Igboho’s bail application
The legal team of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, is reportedly putting up a strong bail application that would not be rejected by the Cour D’Appel De Cotonou, Benin Republic.
It was gathered that the 48-year-old activist legal team is awaiting an official medical report, among other documents, to file a bail application on his behalf.
According to PUNCH, one of the 11 lawyers expected to represent Igboho said, “Preliminary reports that we are getting from the medical team show that Igboho needs medical attention. They said he appears strong physically, but his state of health is not getting better. He was limping during Monday’s proceeding.
“We are awaiting an official report. That is part of what we will be presenting for his bail application.”
The coordinating counsel for the Yoruba Nation agitator, Olasupo Ojo, who said lawyers were considering different options on the Igboho matter, refused to give a definite date for the submission of the bail application for the activist, who is facing fresh charges.
“The initial allegations 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.
“We have different options that we are considering apart from applying for bail. I cannot disclose those options now.
“He is alright. The medical doctors have seen him. His wife is also taking food to him. His right as a detainee is being respected. His lawyers also have access to him. We have no problems,” Ojo said.
On Igboho’s state of health, the lawyer said, “He has no complaint now. He is being taken care of.”
