Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba Nation activist has asked his supporters to forgive his lawyer Ibrahim Salami, few days after the lawyer allegedly disrespected him.
On the reason why he got angry with Ibrahim Salami, Sunday Igboho had said:
” I told him (lawyer) I was hungry and had to eat, and he told me to go. I told him to see me; it wasn’t because of those people that he came here now. I was waiting for him for 15 minutes. If he had told those people to give him time to attend to his client, that one would not have said anything because he knew you came there because of me.
” But he abandoned me where I was. I didn’t know him before now; I wasn’t expecting him at all. I didn’t know it was Salami that lawyer, Falola, would be sending. I’m not a young boy now; I’ll be 50 years by October this year. I might have a small body but God answered my prayers. I’m a man and I know my worth.
” If I get angry with anyone, the person won’t be able to hold me. The day I changed it for them here in the prison, they were shocked. I told them to either kill me or change my cell and that I didn’t care if they would open fire on me. They had no option than to charge my cell. You know my baba; you know what I can do now.
” Are the lawyers God? The lawyers that can’t convince a judge to release me; see how many they are, about 10 of them, are those lawyers? The lawyers that can’t let them remove handcuffs from my hands for seven days until Falola came. It wasn’t small money that they collected, some collected N5million, some N4million. I’m not afraid of any one of them. ”
According to SaharaReporters, when told the lawyer claimed he had information for him, Sunday Igboho said, ” I don’t need any information from them. Anything they want to do, they should do it. I don’t need any information from them, I told my wife when she visited me recently. Any information that can’t take me out of here is useless. He didn’t give me respect at all. That was actually what happened. ”
Consequently, in a recent development, Bobagunwa Yekini, Sunday Igboho’ s strong associate who spoke in a viral video, noted that Igboho has forgiven his lawyer Salami and that his supporters should forgive him too, but Salami must do the needful.
Bobagunwa Yekini, said:
” This is a message from Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho, we just spoke and he asked me to plead with you all (Yoruba Nation supporters) to forgive lawyer salami.
” He pleaded that we should forgive him, all freedom fighters and those who broadcast his name everywhere. He needs us and we need him, so we all need each other.
” Igboho is a strong warrior. He does not insult people, and he also hates insults. We forgive you lawyer salami. It is now time for you to do the needful. Once you do the right thing, then we’ll praise you widely. “
