JUST IN: Court stops DSS from arresting Igboho



A High Court in Oyo State has granted an ex-parte motion restraining the Department of State Security (DSS) from arresting, and blocking bank accounts of  Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho. 

Justice Ladiean Akintola gave the order following an ex-parte motion moved by his lawyer Chief Yomi Aliu (SAN) at the court on Wednesday. 

“The court has ordered that he must not be arrested, detained, killed in the next 14 days. The account also said that his account should not be blocked,” Yomi Aliu said after the case. 

The suit was adjourned to August 18. 

Recall that the DSS had raided the residence, killing two people and arresting 12 aides but Igboho escaped.

The raid had come two days before an Igboho planned ”Yoruba Nation Rally” in Lagos. 

The agency alleged that Igboho was stockpiling weapons, and subsequently declared him wanted.

Having escaped the raid, Igboho absconded Nigeria, heading to Germany passing through Benin Republic.  

He was however arrested on Monday night, July 19, by the authorities of the Benin Government and has since been awaiting his fate at the Cour De’Appel De Cotonou, Benin Republic.

According to reports, he has been the subject of an extradition request from the Nigerian government.
