The counsel to Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, in Benin Republic, Ibrahim David Salami, has noted that the activist was arrested with Nigerian and German passports.
Salami stated this while reacting to the reports that the agitator was tried for possessing a Beninoise passport despite not being a citizen of the country.
The lawyer while speaking with BBC Yoruba said “It is not true that Benin Republic passport was found on Sunday Igboho when he was arrested.
“What was found on him were Nigerian and German passport. His wife had only her German passport on her at the point of arrest.”
The update was given in a statement obtained by Naija News and signed by the group Communications Manager, Maxwell Adeleye
