The Ibadan High court sitting on Wednesday aborted the move of the Department of state security service(DSS) and the Attorney General of Nigeria to arrest and block the accounts of Chief Sunday Igboho Adeyemo.
After listening to the suit filed by Chief Sunday Igboho’s counsel Yomi Aliyu, Justice Ladiran Akintolu gave an order refraining the secret police and Mr Abubakar from arresting and blocking the account of the Omo-oduduwa Nation(Seeking for an independent Yoruba nation).
The respondents including the DSS director and the AGF of Oyo state were absent in court.
The counsel further told the court that Igboho’s life has been under threat after the bloody invasion of his house by the DSS operatives which led to the damage of his properties and killing of his close relative.
In the ruling Justice Akintola expressed satisfaction and belief in the account of his counsel and ordered that Igboho not be arrested, killed or maimed by any of their security agents; he asked that they allow him exercise his fundamental human rights. Furthermore, Justice Akintola ordered that any restrictions on his accounts be lifted and his adjourned the case until 18th August 2021 for a hearing of the originating summon.
