Following the raid on chief Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called Sunday Igboho’s house, it has been reported that he has approached the Federal High Court, Abuja, for the release of his aides arrested by operatives of the DSS at his house in the Soka area of Ibadan on the 1st of July, 2021.
According to reports, Chief Yomi Aliyu (SAN), the Counsel for the Yoruba Nation agitator, said that he had filed an action before a Federal High Court in Abuja for the release of the 13 arrested persons.
He reportedly added that the spokesman for Igboho, Olayomi Koiki, had issued a statement on Wednesday that the DSS did not allow lawyers to see Igboho’s aides in its custody.
Aliyu stated that, “We have filed an action before a Federal High Court in Abuja concerning their bail. We filed it today.”
Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Prof. Banji Akintoye-led group, Maxwell Adeleye, disclosed that group’s lawyers had been working to ensure the release of the protesters that have spent six days in police custody.
Adeleye stated that, “We know that they have been in police custody for so many days now but our lawyers are working to ensure their release.”
