12 Arrested Igboho’s Aides To Appear In Court On Sallah Day – Says Lawyer

A Lawyer Pelumi Olajengbesi has said that the 12 arrested aides of Sunday Igboho will be appearing before a judge on Salah day.

Glamtush reports that a suit instituted by 12 detained associates of Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, against the Department of State Services and its Director-General, Yusuf Bichi, will come up for hearing on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, (Sallah day) at the Federal High Court, Abuja, one of the counsels for the applicants, Pelumi Olajengbesi, has said.

Olajengbesi made this known lon Sunday.

However, Glamtush gathered that judges are avoiding the matter because of its sensitive nature.

Recall that at least a dozen of Igboho’s associates were arrested and detained by the secret police on July 1 after the DSS’ bloody raid of Igboho’s residence in the Soka area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The secret police also said that it “gunned down” two of the activist’s associates during a “gun duel” which Igboho narrowly escaped.

He was later declared wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms, an allegation he denied.
