Olusegun Falola, counsel to the Yoruba independence fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has revealed why the embattled secessionist will not return to Nigeria anytime soon.

Sunday Igboho Arrives Benin Republic Court for Trial
While presenting an update on Igboho’s trial on Tuesday, Falola stated that his client is secure in Benin Republic and that extraditing him to Nigeria will jeopardize his life.

Falola said there are plans to kill Sunday Igboho.

Falola disclosed this while giving an update on the safety of the Yoruba nation agitator.

He said Igboho’s trial will test how powerful Nigeria is in Africa.

“The case will make revelations as to which government is powerful in Africa, our government may not be wealthy, and not much in population as compared to Nigeria but there is a signed treaty that must be respected.

“Igboho cannot be left to return back to Nigeria for now because of the destruction of his properties that was witnessed, they are not looking for Sunday Igboho alone but planning to kill him.

“They are looking for how to kill him and that’s very dangerous to allow him return to Nigeria. So he is being kept safe in custody,” he told newsmen.
