Better for us to kill Igboho in Benin than return him to Nigeria —Lawyer
Ibrahim Salami, one of the five lawyers representing Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho, says he and other lawyers will never let the Yoruba youth leader get extradited to Nigeria.
“What is important for us, what is paramount, is to never never never allow for the extradition of Sunday Igboho to Nigeria.
“With all that happened in his house, and how the army is threatening him, allowing for his extradition will be sending him home to death.
“Rather than do that, it would be better to keep him in Benin and kill him, than to let him go to Nigeria to be slaughtered like an animal. That has been our struggle and agitation here in Benin.” he told the BBC in an interview on Saturday.
