A lawyer to Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemi, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, Yomi Aliyu, has debunked reports of an alleged plot to eliminate his client.

Aliyu stated this on Wednesday during a chat with Vanguard in reaction to claims by Olayomi Koiki, Sunday Igboho’s spokesman.

Koiki had alleged that the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government was plotting to eliminate Sunday Igboho in his detention cell in Benin Republic.

In his response, Aliyu, who said he remains in constant communication with Ropo, the wife of the activist, said he has no knowledge of any plans to assasinate his client.

He, however, said the federal government would be held responsible if any harm befalls the secession advocate.

He said: “I don’t have knowledge of a threat to his life. I speak with his wife regularly but I don’t have such knowledge of plans to eliminate him.

“We have persuaded his boys and Yoruba youths not to take laws into their hands. We told them not to behave like IPOB because we told them that if they start killing and burning, they will be killing their kiths and kins. We urged them to keep their cool, however, if anybody is flying such a kite to know the feelings of what will happen if Sunday Igboho is murdered in prison, I advise that such a person should have a rethink.

“I don’t think anyone is planning that except the enemies of this government. The only way this Government can wash its hands off this evil intention is to release Sunday Igboho now because they (FG) are the ones keeping him in prison and not the Benin Republic government.

“If anything should happen to Sunday Igboho, we will hold the Federal Government responsible.

“That is why we have been appealing to Yoruba youths not to take laws into their hands because we are optimistic that Sunday Igboho will be free and that the alleged plan to kill him is mere rumour. I don’t see any threat to his life.”
