According to the lawyer, he said Igboho's detention is a blessing in disguise. However, he said Sunday Igboho is staying underground for now. He noted that the Yoruba activist would return to Nigeria when Buhari leaves office.

Lawyer Falola said in an interview that Sunday Igboho was cheated because he didn't commit any offence and the Nigerian government didn't show any evidence against him, there are no criminal charges against him in the court. So, the court ordered that the activist should be kept in prison for further investigation. However, the court granted him access to medical treatment and access to see his family. Nigerians should be thankful for that, the lawyer said.

The lawyer added that once the government release him, he will seek asylum from France, Germany or any other country, he won't come to Nigeria until when Buhari leaves office.
