The 12 aides of Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho a Yoruba Nation agitator, detained by the Department of State Service (DSS) were on Wednesday, August 4, brought before the Federal High Court, Abuja.
According to reports Justice Obiora Egwuatu had ordered the DSS to produce all the aides to enable the court to inquire into the circumstances surrounding their arrest.
It was gathered that the detained aides were arrested in Igboho’s house on July 1 and had approached the court challenging their arrest and continued detention.
This followed an ex-parte motion moved by counsel to the 12 applicants, Pelumi Olahengbesi, seeking the enforcement of their fundamental rights.
According to the report, despite the court order, the DSS had, on one occasion, failed to produce any of the detainees in court.
It was reported that in the last adjourned date, only eight out of the 12 suspects were brought to the court.
The DSS, however, brought all the 12 detainees to court on Wednesday, August 4, and the agency is expected to tell the court why they should not be released on bail as demanded by their lawyer.
