One of the counsels of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, Pelumi Olajengbesi has noted that the relationship between Nigeria Ambassador to the Benin Republic, Tukur Buratai and the country’s president, Patrice Talon will not achieve any results.
Olajengbesi made this claim in a chat with Punch on Monday while reacting to the recent meeting between Buratai and Talon.
The counsel to the agitator said Buratai asked for the extradition of Igboho to Nigeria but the Benin Republic disappointed him.
Olajengbesi in his statement said members of the agitator’s legal team are not afraid of Buratai and his relationship with Benin Republic.
“We are not afraid of Buratai. He is doing his best in the interest of the government he represents to see that Chief Sunday Igboho is extradited and not given justice but we are not worried because this matter is before the court and we expect the court to do justice,” he said.
“Chief Sunday Igboho is a peacemaker, someone who is struggling to see that there is liberty for people who are unjustly killed.
“If Buratai whose record is in the public domain is making efforts to extradite Igboho, I think he is just wasting his time with his romance with the Government of Benin Republic, he cannot intimidate the Government of Benin Republic; it is a sovereign nation like Nigeria. If his (Buratai’s) intention had been done, then, Sunday Igboho would have been returned to Nigeria but he has not been able to succeed.”
