IGBOHO MAYBE DEPORTED TO NIGERIA, LAWYERS KICKS

Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, may be deported to Nigeria soon according information filtering in from Benin Republic.

The charges preferred against Igboho by the Benin Government were punishable by deportation, fines or imprisonment.

But his lawyers are kicking against deportation, describing such move as against international law.

If deported, Igboho will be picked up by the DSS as they have him on their most wanted list.

One of Igboho’s lawyers said they are aware that the FG is putting pressure on Benin Republic “through the backdoor to deport Igboho at a time that will only be known between the security operatives of the two countries.”

Pelumi Olajengbesi, Nigerian-based counsel for Igboho said that such sinister plot will fail. According to him: “I am aware that the Federal Government through the former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai is making effort to get him deported. We can say that clearly.

“So, for the facts available before the court have nothing to do with Nigeria government.

“We have nothing to worry about because the Benin Republic government has shown that it will operate within the precinct of the law. For us, we believe that Igboho is a criminal of conscience who has taken an effort to liberate his people.”

Coordinating Counsel for Igboho, Olasupo Ojo, warned that deporting Igboho for Nigeria to arrest him as it is against international law.

“It is illegal under international law to send back somebody who escaped to save his life. You cannot send him to a country where there is ample evidence that his life is at stake, endangered. It will bounce back heavily on Benin Republic if they do that.”
