Igboho’s lawyer disclosed that the agitator was arrested alongside his wife, who is a German citizen.
The council revealed that the arrest was in collaboration with the Nigerian government.
He appealed to the German Government and other the international community “to rise and curb the impunity of the Nigerian Government by refusing any application for extradition of our Client who already has an application before the International Criminal Court duly acknowledged”.
