Sunday Igboho needs consular, National Assembly support like Ekweremadu — Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani has called on the National Assembly to give Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho similar support it is giving former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu.

Ekweremadu and wife Beatrice are being held in the UK over alleged conspiracy to harvest the organs of a minor. They have since denied wrongdoing, saying the alleged minor is actually 21 years old.

Sunday Igboho, on the other hand, is unable to leave Benin Republic since his arrest last year. He fled Nigeria following an invasion by Nigeria’s security forces at his Ibadan residence.

Although the charges against him are not clear they are believed to be connected to travel infringements.

“Ekwerenmadu deserves all the necessary consular support he needs,” Sani tweeted on Wednesday. “The response of the NASS is in the right direction. But same should be extended to Sunday Igboho.”

Sani’s tweets followed announcement by the Senate that a delegation will be sent to the United Kingdom to meet with Ekweremadu. Senate President Ahmad Lawan further said the Nigeria High Commission in the UK will be providing lawyers to represent the Ekweremadus.
