Following the raid on Sunday Igboho’s house and the arrest of his aides, it has been reported that the Department of State Services (DSS) had fed the 12 arrested aides with a soup known as “engine oil”.
This was disclosed by Pelumi Olajengbesi, the lawyer of the agitators, adding that he has not been allowed to meet with his clients for over four weeks.
Olajengbesi stated that, “It is important to state that their current situation is a classical definition of wholesome human rights abuse. Their health is, sadly, poor and in a sorry situation.’
He added that, “They are made to sleep on the bare floor and are badly beaten before medical treatment is accorded them to heal and conceal injuries from the torture.”
He disclosed that, “Lady K, in particular, seems to have sustained fracture on her left leg and is in serious pains. She has not had a change of clothes and folds herself to sleep in the terrible cell.”
He continued that, “They’re being treated badly and worse than animals, and we did our best in assuring and keeping them upbeat and in high spirits before making our exit.”
