An Oyo State High Court in Ibadan has again restrained the Department of State Services (DSS), and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami (SAN), from arresting, killing, or harassing Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
The order was given by Justice Ladiran Akintola, who presided over the court in a sitting in Ibadan on Monday, 30th August, 2021.
Confirming the order, the lead counsel for Igboho, Yomi Aliyu (SAN), revealed that, “The judge said the interim order of injunction should continue until September 7 when we will go back to court.”
Recall that Igboho has been in detention in Cotonou, Benin Republic, since July 19, 2021, when he was arrested at an airport as he tried to board a Germany-bound flight.
The DSS raided Igboho’s Ibadan residence on July 1, 2021, allegedly killing two of his associates and arresting 12 others.
Following this, Justice Akintola on August 4, 2021, ordered the secret police and the AGF not to arrest Igboho or freeze his bank accounts.
