The Department of State Services has released two more
aides of Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo,.
The secret police released two of the detained aides of
the activist on Friday.
Their lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, confirmed their release
to our correspondent.
Oniftv had reported on August 30, 2021, that the DSS
released eight of the 12 aides of the aides of the agitator
also known as Sunday Igboho.
Justice Obiora Egwuatu of the Federal High Court sitting
in Abuja on August 4, 2021 had granted bail to the 12
detainees.
They had met their bail conditions including the provision
of 24 sureties but the DSS lawyer, Idowu Awo, kicked
against the bail granted by Justice Egwuatu to four of the
detainees, claiming that they were heavily involved in the
alleged offence of arms stockpiling and other criminal
activities of their boss, Igboho.
Awo had filed a remand application for the four detainees
saying their release would affect investigation. He had
also approached an Appeal Court sitting in Abuja to
revoke the bail earlier granted to the four persons.
The detainees were arrested around 1am on July 1, 2021,
when the secret police “raided” Igboho’s Ibadan residence
in a Gestapo style, killing two other associates of the
activist in a “gun duel.”
The 12 detainees had approached the court to seek their
release.
