Her comments come after Yomi Aliyu, the Yoruba activist’s lawyer, expressed concern about his health. Aliyu revealed on October 14th that Igboho was rushed to the hospital for emergency medical treatment after his health deteriorated.
Alliyu revealed that one of Igboho’s organs (the kidney) may have been harmed as a result of injuries he sustained when he reportedly fell while attempting to flee gunmen who invaded his Soka residence in Ibadan on July 1.
Igboho has also issued a public warning, stating that he has not asked anyone, including his security personnel or groups of people, to demand money for his medical treatment in the Benin Republic.
