Yemi Alliyu, a lawyer of Sunday Adeyemo, popularly know as Sunday Igboho, has asked Nigerians to ignore anyone requesting money from them to prosecute court proceedings concerning the agitator, who is leading the push for the creation of Oduduwa Republic.
Sunday Igboho’s apartment in Soka, Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, was stormed by DSS operatives in July.
As a result of the invasion, 12 aides of the agitator were detained.
However, actions have been taken by the separatist’s lawyer as a lawsuit was filed against the arrest of the aides in courts at Abuja and Ibadan.
As a result, some notable Yoruba sons and daughters were reportedly approached for funds to prosecute the suits.
Alliyu warned Nigerians from providing money to anyone to meet bail requirements, Igboho or his aides, he said, do not require financial assistance.
Following Igboho’s instructions, we have rejected financial assistance from a few individuals, he said.
Alliyu pointed out his disappointment as several people and entities who have nothing to do with the case have claimed to be the sponsors of the lawsuits.
“No one has given any money to the pending trials involving Igboho and his associates in Abuja or Ibadan,” he maintained.
“It has come to our notice that various groups and individuals that have nothing to do with the case filed by Chief Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Igboho Oosa have been laying claims to sponsoring the suits and/or criticizing decisions of the court thereon.

“We want to be quick to say that as of today no group and/or individual has contributed a kobo to the two cases going on in Nigeria to wit, his aides’ case in Abuja and the Ibadan matter.
“Various peanuts offered by some very loud groups have been turned down by me on my client’s instructions,” Alliyu added.
“He has been carrying his cross alone with no assistance from home or abroad! People should be brave to challenge any individual and/or group asking them for money on bail on his behalf or those of his aides.
“Bail is free in all Courts in Nigeria and as such neither Igboho nor his aides need assistance on bail. Our client is willing and able to prosecute his matters to logical conclusions without peanuts being offered by those claiming to be involved in his struggle”, he said.
