This pain is too much: Igboho cries out, chained in custody like an animal in Cotonou, weeps like a baby — Lawyer

Following the arrest of Chief Sunday Adeyemo (a.k.a Sunday Igboho) on Monday, his legal representative, Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), has alleged that his client is facing inhumane treatment as well as harrowing torture and pains in police custody in Cotonou, Republic of Benin.

According to him, Igboho is allegedly being treated less than an animal in police custody based on what he termed “order from above,” and he would appear before a court today, for an extradition order.

He alleged further that he has information from a police source that Igboho has been put in a painful condition and subjected to torture as his legs and hands were allegedly tied like an animal.

“Just about three minutes ago, I got a call from a reliable source from the authorities in the Republic of Benin that Sunday Igboho has been put in a very dehumanizing condition in a police cell in Cotonou.

“The police source told me that they are under instruction by an order from the above that Igboho should be chained like an animal waiting to be slaughtered. He told me that Igboho was tightly chained to the floor and he is in serious pain.

“While I was talking to the police officer on the telephone, I can hear our client crying and asking that the chains should be removed and that he is in pain. But the officer told him that they cannot remove the chains as they are acting on instruction,” he said.

Alliyu insisted that the extradition order being sought by the Nigerian authorities may not likely sail through, given the status of Igboho as a political offender.

“I know that our client, Chief Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho), would be taken to a court in Cotonou, the capital of the Republic of Benin, today, Wednesday.

“The Nigerian authorities and security operatives that arrested him would be approaching the court for an extradition order to bring Sunday Igboho back to Nigeria.

“But it is not likely that the extradition order being sought for would sail through. This is because of the status of our client as a political offender who enjoys immunity against extradition.
