Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has asked his supporters to forgive Ibrahim Salami, one of his Benin Republic-based lawyers.

Igboho, had in a leaked audio, berated one of his lawyers Salami, for allegedly disrespecting him.

In the leaked audio obtained by SaharaReporters, Ighoho claimed the lawyer abandoned him and kept him waiting for over 15 minutes while speaking to someone else.

He lambasted all his Benin Republic-based lawyers and complained about his alleged maltreatment and abandonment in prison despite receiving about N5m each.

Igboho had expressed confidence in gaining freedom if returned to Nigeria by the Benin Republic.

Salami, in an interview with BBC, faulted the activist's words stating that the leaked audio was dangerous for the justice being pursued on behalf of Igboho.

He said Igboho was angry with him and other members of the legal team because he felt he had no reason to remain in police detention for “not committing any crime”.

“He wants things to be done faster,” the lawyer said in Yoruba.

Salami said Igboho was angry with him and other members of the legal team because he felt he had no reason to remain in police detention.

In a recent development, one of Igboho’s strong associates, Bobagunwa Yekini, in a video said: “This is a message from Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho, we just spoke and he asked me to plead with you all (Yoruba Nation supporters) to forgive lawyer salami.

“He pleaded that we should forgive him, all freedom fighters and those who broadcast his name everywhere. He needs us and we need him, so we all need each other.

“Igboho is a strong warrior. He does not insult people, and he also hates insults. We forgive you lawyer salami. It is now time for you to do the needful. Once you do the right thing, then we’ll praise you widely.”
