Big Win For Sunday Igboho As Court Rules In His Favour

Justice Ladiean Akintola of Oyo High Court has granted an ex-parte motion restraining the Department of State Security (DSS) and Attorney General of the Federation from arresting, intimidating, harassing, and blocking bank accounts of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

Recall that DSS officials raided his Ibadan home on July 1, arrested twelve of his supporters and declared him wanted.

Igboho who fled the country afterwards through his lawyer, Yomi Aliyu, filed a N500 million lawsuit against the DSS over the invasion of his residence.

At the hearing of the suit this morning, the court granted the order to stop the DSS from arresting or intimidating the activist following an ex-parte motion moved by Aliyu.

Aliu expressed confidence the AGF Abubakar Malami (SAN) will not disobey the court order, stressing that it was given directly against his office.

The judge adjourned the case till August 18.
