The Department of State Service (DSS) on Wednesday produced all 12 detained aides of Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho before the Federal High Court in Abuja.
This comes less than seventy-two hours after the court ordered the agency to produce all aides of the Yoruba Nation agitator. On Monday the DSS produced only eight of the detained aides at the court. The aides were arrested when DSS officials raided Igboho’s home on July 1, but have sued on grounds that their fundamental human rights were being infringed on.
A lawyer to the arrested aides, Pelumi Olajengbesi, sued the DSS, claiming that his clients have remained underground for weeks. The DSS on July 1 paraded the aides and accused them of stockpiling arms to cause chaos in the country.
After the DSS raid on his (Igboho) home, he fled to the Benin Republic and is presently in court fighting extradition back to Nigeria. Mr. Igboho rose to fame after issuing a quit notice to herders in the southwest over increasing violence.
