According to Professor Wale Adeniran of Ilana Omo Oodua, the false information about his release is counter productive.“Why should people be putting out false information that he has been released which is injurious to this struggle and to the welfare and wellbeing of igboho?When the lawyers saw the false information, they relaxed, I had to tell them it is false. So can you see the damage.I have just spoken with his lawyer. The lawyer has visited the location where he (Igboho) is being held.
He was not allowed to see him (Igboho) but they confirmed to him that they are holding him in that location.He was asked to come back tomorrow (Wednesday) by 8:00am to see him.I asked him hope they are not going to play a funny game of secretly extraditing him, the lawyer told me it is not possible.We filed an application for political asylum for him over a week ago. With that in process, he cannot be legally extradited from Benin republic. I am very confident about that.I handle the application myself with the immigration lawyer and he assured me that since that application has been filed, he cannot be extradited. I think we should be rest assured that he will have the opportunity to see him tomorrow.”– Via Heritage Television
