Court postpones judgment on Igboho’s appeal

Igboho’s counsel, Chief Yomi Aliyyu (SAN), told journalists on Wednesday after the court session that the case had been adjourned for judgment.

He said the court would communicate the exact date for the judgment to the parties in the suit.

Journalists as well as supporters of Igboho, who had thronged the court, were barred from entering the court premises.

The supporters, who stormed the court to demand the release of Igboho, said he must not be allowed to die like Chief Moshood Abiola during the military era.
