A High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State has granted an ex-parte motion restraining the Department of State Security (DSS) and Attorney General of the Federation from arresting, intimidating, harassing, and blocking bank accounts of Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
Justice Ladiean Akintola of the High Court granted the order following an ex-parte motion moved by Igboho’s lawyer Chief Yomi Aliu (SAN) at the court on Wednesday.
The motion developed from the originating motion seeking N500 billion damages for invasion of his house in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on July 1.
Aliu expressed confidence that the AGF Abubakar Malami (SAN) will not disobey the court order, stressing that it was given directly against his office.
Further hearing was therefore adjourned to August 18, 2021.
Also, a Federal High Court in Abuja has granted bail to the detained 12 associates of Yoruba nation advocate Sunday Igboho.
Justice Obiora Egwuatu, in a ruling a moment ago, granted eight of them, whose bail application was not challenged by the Department of State Services (DSS) bail at N5million each.
Justice Egwuatu granted bail at N10million each for the other four, whose application was challenged by the DSS.
The judge also ordered each of the detainees to produce two sureties and directed they should remain in the custody of the DSS until they are able to meet the bail conditions.
