DSS bows to pressure, brings Igboho’s aides to court


Judge didn't run abroad to evade signing Igboho’s aides release warrant, Lawyer disassociates self from speculation

The Department of State Services on Monday morning appeared at the Federal High Court in Abuja with the arrested aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho.

Recall that 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.

The lawyer to the arrested aides, Pelumi Olajenbesi, sued the DSS, claiming that his clients have remained underground amid reports of torture and inhuman treatments for weeks.

Ruling on the suit, Justice Obiora Egwuatu had ordered the DSS to produce the 12 aides on July 29.

But on court day, the DSS failed to honour the directive.
