Court Hears Igboho Aides’ Bail Application Today

The Federal High Court Abuja is to preside over the application brought before it by 12 detained associates of the Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, today (Thursday).

However, there is uncertainty on whether or not the Department of State Services will produce them as ordered.

At the last adjourned date, Justice Obiora Egwuatu ordered the DSS to produce the detained associates of Igboho in court.

Justice Egwuatu had also ordered the DSS to show cause why the detainees should not be admitted to bail.

The detainees had instituted a suit against the DSS and its Director-General, Yusuf Bichi.

At the last adjourned date, the applicants’ counsel, Pelumi Olajengbesi, had moved his ex parte motion praying the court for an order “mandating and compelling the respondents to produce the applicants” to enable the court “inquire into the circumstances constituting grounds of their arrest and detention” since 1 July, 2021.
