An Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan has on Wednesday ordered that the Department of State Security and Attorney General of the Federation should not arrest, harass, intimidate nor block the bank account of the leader of Yoruba Nation agitators, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
The court granted an ex-parte order in a motion filed by Sunday Igboho before Justice Ladiean Akintola of Oyo State High Court through his lawyer, Yomi Aliu (SAN).
Delivering the ex-parte order, the presiding Judge refrained the DSS and AGF from arresting, harassing, intimidating Sunday Igboho in the next 14 days, and also stopped them from blocking his bank account for the said period, and then adjourned the suit until August 18.
Addressing the press after the court session, Igboho’s counsel, Yomi Aliu stated:
The court has ordered that he must not be arrested, detained, killed in the next 14 days. The Judge also said that his account should not be blocked,” Yomi Aliu said after the case.
HotnewsinNaija had reported how Chief Sunday Igboho was arrested at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport in Cotonou, while trying to flee to Germany from the country, few weeks after his residence was raided in the middle of the night by the operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) and had two of his aides killed.
Igboho was later declared wanted, after the raid, by the DSS on an allegation that he was stockpiling arms and weapons to wreck havoc and wage war against the Nigerian state – the more reason he attempted to escape to Germany through Benin Republic.
