Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), Counsel for the Yoruba Nation activist, made this known on Monday in a statement in Ibadan.

“I am to inform you that Chief Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a Igboho, has been released from prison to his medical practitioners under the agreement that he should not leave the medical centre or Cotonou for any reason.
“Praises should be given to two prominent Yoruba personalities to wit: Prof. Wole Soyinka and Prof. Banji Akintoye for this turn around in our client’s matter,” he said.
The incarceration of Igboho in the Republic of Benin had been extended by six months after spending the initial six months in prison.
