IGBOHO: Court orders DSS to produce Igboho’s aides



Sunday Adeyemo

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Friday has granted the ex parte applications of the 12 detained aides of Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu in his ruling on the ex parte application before the court ordered that the Department of State Service should produce the detained aides of Sunday Igboho in court on 29th of July, 2021.

Pelumi Olajengbesi, the applicant’s counsel, moved the ex parte motion asking the court for an order “mandating and compelling the respondents to produce the applicants” to enable the court to “inquire into the circumstances constituting grounds of their arrest and detention” since July 1, 2021, and where it seems fit, grant applicants bail.”


The applicants’ counsel sought the order of the court mandating and compelling the respondents (DSS) to produce the applicants before the court and “show cause as to why the applicants should not be granted bail in accordance with the provision of Section 32 of Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 and other extant laws in Nigeria.” Olajengbesi stated that the accused persons are citizens of Federal Republic of Nigeria with inherent rights.

The ex-parte motion was supported with affidavit of non-complicity of action, an 11-paragraph affidavit of extreme urgency, an eight-paragraph affidavit, exhibit, and a written address.
