Chief Yomi Alliyu ( SAN), leader counsel for Sunday Igboho, has disclosed that the Yoruba Nation agitator wept like a baby when they had a telephone conversation on Tuesday.

Recall that Igboho and wife, Ropo, who is a German citizen, were arrested at the Cadjèhoun Airport in Cotonou, Benin Republic while attempting to board a flight to Germany.

There has been controversy over the Federal Government’s plan to extradite Igboho back to Nigeria to face trial.

Revealing details of his call with the separatist leader, Alliyu said, “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.”
