Leaked audio: Igboho’s lawyer finally breaks silence, reveals why Yoruba activist is angry
Salami faulted Sunday Igboho over leaked audio where the activist faulted his legal team.
Legit.ng gathered that Salami explained that the leaked audio is dangerous for the justice being pursued on behalf of Igboho.
He said Igboho was angry with him and other members of the legal team because he felt he had no reason to remain in police detention.
Salami, a professor of law, explained that Igboho found it strange to remain in police custody for not committing any crime, saying that the activist wants things to be done faster. He, however, said Igboho didn’t intend to make his complaint public.
The lawyer noted:
“Igboho is someone that gets angry easily and if I have a challenge with a client, it is not something to be discussed in the media."
