A federal High Court sitting in Ibadan on Wednesday granted an ex-parte motion restraining the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, and Departmentriate Security, DSS, from arresting, intimidating, harassing, and blocking bank accounts of Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
The order was granted by Justice Ladiean Akintola following an ex-parte motion moved by Igboho’s lawyer Chief Yomi Aliu (SAN).
The Yoruba secessionist activist had through his lawyers filed a motion seeking N5.5 billion damages for invasion of his house in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on July 1.
Two persons were killed by the DSS in the raid while 12 others were arrested and whisked to Abuja.
Igboho is suing the AGF and the DSS claiming damages over alleged violation of his fundamental human rights.
