Igboho won’t return to Nigeria until Buhari leaves – Lawyer

Yoruba nation agitator, Chief Sunday Igboho, is reportedly planning to seek asylum in Benin Republic and France when he leaves prison, according to his lawyer, Olusegun Falola.

Falola also disclosed that Igboho would not return to Nigeria until the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari leaves office.

“Igboho’s arrest shows he was cheated, because he didn’t commit any criminal offence. He is under Benin Republic’s protection.

“Nigeria did not show up in court or bring up evidence against Igboho. So there are no criminal charges against him. When he leaves prison, he’ll demand asylum from other countries including France, and they will be ready to receive him.

“So he’ll return back to Nigeria when the administration that is against him leaves office.

“The judges asked him if he had land in Cotonou and he responded that he has a land in Seme. So, there is still danger ahead. Igboho’s asylum in Cotonou is for him to stay in the country and do his businesses in the country and also travel to Germany to either live there or to travel to and fro. He’ll use Benin as his new home until Buhari’s tenure is over just for his own safety,” TheNation quoted Falola as saying.

While Igboho is presently standing trial in Cotonou, the Nigerian government – which declared him wanted – is yet to level any charges against him.
