Court stops AGF, DSS from arresting Sunday Igboho
Justice Ladiean Akintola of the Oyo High Court has approved an ex-parte motion restraining the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and the Department of State Security (DSS) from arresting, harassing, intimidating and blocking bank accounts of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
The order was approved after an ex-parte motion moved by Igboho’s lawyer, Chief Yomi Aliu (SAN), at the court on Wednesday.
“The court has ordered that he must not be arrested, detained, or killed in the next 14 days. The account also said that his account should not be blocked,” Yomi Aliu said following the case.
The motion developed from the originating motion seeking N500 billion damages for invasion of his house in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, last month.
Aliu expressed confidence that Malami will not disobey the court order, stressing that it was given directly against his office.
However, the hearing in the suit was adjourned to August 18.
