She recalled the picture she encountered when he visited him in an Ilorin, Kwara State, where he is being detained and said she wept bitterly at the negative physical transformation happening to him.
“I felt pain when I saw my son at the correctional facility in Offa; he looked nothing like he used to before,” Adegbola said and broke down in tears.
“I saw him and I began to cry. He was a shadow of himself. He had lost much weight. His hands were thin, his legs pale. He was beaten and tortured. My son’s leg was swollen, as well as his wrist. He was in pain.
Reports emerged a few weeks ago that Adegbola had gone to Ilorin to plead with the Islamic clerics who sued her son.
She was seen in a viral video kneeling and begging for her son to be pardoned and freed soon.
Clarifying the reason behind her apology, Adegbola stated that she went on her own accord as a practising Muslim with the hope that her apology would be considered and her son would be released.
“I went on my own accord to plead with the alfas in Ilorin. I went with the belief that my faith, being a practising Muslim, would be considered, and my son would be freed.
“I thought my faith was enough to make them have a rethink and free my son but nothing of such has happened. Just last week, November 3, he was slammed with another lawsuit by a Muslim group that he burned a Quran,” Adegbola said.
