DSS provides only 8 Igboho’s aides in Court
The Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday adjourned the hearing of the suit filed by the 12 persons arrested at the residence of Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho till Wednesday, August 4.
It will be recalled that the court had on July 23, ordered the DSS to produce the 12 arrested persons who have been in detention since July 2, before it on July 29.
But the Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday produced only eight of the detained applicants before the court.
Those the security agency produced in compliance with an earlier order of the court were Amoda Babatunde (aka Lady K), Tajudeen Erinoyen, Diakola Ademola Jubril, Abideen Shittu, Jamiu Noah Oyetunji, Ayobami Donald, Raji Kazeem, and Bamidele Sunday.
Four others (Abdullateef Ademola Onaolapo, Uthman Opeyemi Adelabu, Oluwafemi Ola Kunle, Okoyemi Tajudeen) were not brought before the court owing to discrepancies in their names.
According to Olajengbesi, he was only granted access to his clients last Friday after which he observed that some of the names he previously listed in the court processes, were nicknames of the applicants.
However, Justice Obiora Egwuatu granted the request by the counsel of the detained applicants Pelumi Olajengbesi to enable him to amend the court processes to reflect their (applicants’) real names.
While adjourning the case, Justice Egwuatu ordered the DSS to produce all the detained persons in court on Wednesday.
