His lawyer said he had been taken to the hospital in Cotonou for medical attention.

Alliyu claimed that the agitator’s body organs may have been damaged while trying to escape during the July 1 invasion of his Soka, home by operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS).

“Igboho was not diagnosed with this sickness before he was arrested in Cotonou. It was so critical that they had to convey him to a hospital.

“I can’t tell if he has been returned to the prison from the hospital, but what I know is, he’s battling ill health and it seems his kidney and lungs are already being affected.

“Even though I cannot tell which part of his body the sickness has really affected, I know it has to do with his internal organs,” he said.
