Embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has urged Yoruba Nation supporters to forgive Ibrahim Salami, one of his Cotonou-based lawyers.

Igboho had in leaked audio, expressed anger with Salami’s team which comprises about 10 lawyers in the Benin Republic for failing to secure his release after about 50 days in detention. He lambasted all his Benin Republic-based lawyers and complained about his alleged maltreatment and abandonment in prison despite receiving about N5m each.

In his reaction, Salami said Igboho was angry with him and other members of the legal team because he felt he had no reason to remain in police detention.

Salami, a professor of law explained that Igboho found it strange to remain in police custody for “not committing any crime”.

“He wants things to be done faster,” the lawyer said in Yoruba.

One of Igboho’s strong associates, Aare Almaroof Bobagunwa Yekini, in a video then passed the message of the Yoruba Nation activists.

“This is a message from Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho Oosa, we just spoke and he asked me to plead with you all (Yoruba Nation supporters) to forgive lawyer salami

“He pleaded that we should forgive him, all freedom fighters and those who broadcasted his name everywhere. He needs us and we need him, so we all need each other.

“Igboho is our demi-god in Nigeria, he is a strong warrior. He does not insult people, and he also hates insults. We forgive you lawyer salami. It is now time for you to do the needful. Once you do the right thing, then we’ll praise you widely.”
