Pelumi Olajengbesi, a Managing Partner at Law Corridor, restated his resolve to limit his intervention to professional duty as a lawyer to Mr Igboho and his aides.

“I am a strong believer in constitutional democracy, civil liberty and human rights which includes the right to self-determination but I am not a Yoruba nation agitator nor a member of any like organization,” he said.

Olajengbesi’s action came amidst criticism by a Yoruba group, Ilana Omo Oodua, following a New Year Day statement lamenting the insecurity in the South-west region.

“Let it be abundantly clear that I am not at war with President Buhari, the governors or anybody in government,” the letter read. The letter was signed by Mr Olajengbesi on behalf of Mr Igboho.

But a statement by the Ilana Omo Oodua group said the lawyer has no standing to issue a statement on Mr Igboho’s behalf.
