Sunday Igboho chained in cell, cried like a baby – lawyer

Reports have emerged that Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Igboho was subjected to treatment beneath his dignity during and after his arrests at the airport by the Benin Republic security agents

The lead counsel described as inhuman the treatment his client was being subjected to in the custody of the police in Benin Republic.

The counsel, Chief Yomi Alliyu ( SAN) said this while speaking with one of our correspondents on Tuesday night.

He said his wife, Ropo, who was arrested together with Igboho was also kept in a separate cell by the police in the neighbouring country.

They chained him in the cell where they put him in Cotonou. There was a fracas at the airport yesterday when he was arrested. They hit him in the hand and that same hand was handcuffed, he is in pains and he was weeping like a child when I called, I heard him.

The wife too was put in a separate cell but they didn’t chain the wife. He was crying, the wife was crying too cease he was writhing in pains seriously. We only pray they don’t pay anybody to kill him. You don’t out somebody in cell and still chain the person.

You know he sustained injury and they didn’t take him to hospital for treatment. We heard that he is appearing in court tomorrow but I don’t know whether that will carry it out.”
