Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, suffered “severe injuries” during a raid conducted on his Soka, Ibadan, Oyo State house on Thursday, July 1, 2021, by the Department of State Services.
His Benin Republic-based counsel, Ibrahim Salami, made this known in an interview on Tuesday.
He explained that Igboho is still nursing some of the wounds.
According to him, the Yoruba rights activist needs to be granted bail to treat himself.
During the raid, the DSS arrested 13 of his associates, who are currently undergoing trial, killed two and said Igboho escaped.
Salami stated, “I urge his family and supporters to be patient and prayerful. They should support him with prayers. When they attacked his house in Nigeria, he jumped from the top of a building. His ribs were hurt. He was severely injured.
“In fact, he could not stand before the judge. He sat to address the judge. He needs freedom for medical attention. Those of us that are his lawyers are making a stringent effort.”
