Embattled Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has been said to be diagnosed of a suspected kidney or lungs disease.

The latest development was disclosed by one of Igboho’s lawyers, Yomi Aliyyu, in an interview with BBC Yoruba.

According to Aliyyu, Igboho started showing symptoms of the disease while in the Beninese prison.

He has been reportedly rushed to the hospital for immediate treatment.

“Igboho was not diagnosed with this sickness before he was arrested in Cotonou. It was so critical that they had to rush him to the hospital.

“I can’t tell if he has been returned to the prison from the hospital but what I know is, he’s battling ill health and it seems his kidney and lungs are already being affected.

“Even though I cannot tell which part of his body the sickness has really affected, I know it has to do with his internal organs.”

Igboho has been in custody of the Beninese authorities since his arrest on July, 16, 2021 when he was trying to flee to Germany to escape Nigerian authorities.
