The Department of State Services, on Wednesday, brought all the 12 detained aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho to the Federal High Court Abuja before Justice Obiora Egwuatu.
DSS had at the last adjourned date brought only 8 detainees to court in what appears to be a partial compliance with the order of a Federal High Court, Abuja.
The absence of the remaining 4 without any explanation had generated apprehension and speculation as what could have happened to the rest.
In a latest development, all the 12 detained were in court.
At the time of this report, Justice Obiora Egwuatu has just stepped into the court room for continuation of the suit instituted by the detainees against the DSS Director General.
Justice Obiora Egwuatu had on July 29, reiterated his order to the DSS to produce the applicants in court on August 2 and also appear before the court to show why the applicants should not be released unconditionally.
The order was sequel to an exparte application argued by applicants’ lawyer, Mr Pelumi Olajeingbesi, wherein he informed the court that the applicants have been in custody of the DSS since July 1, 2021.
They were arrested during a midnight raid on Igboho’s residence in Oyo State and subsequently brought to Abuja.
