BREAKING: Court restrains AGF, DSS from arresting Igboho, blocking accounts
Justice Ladiean Akintola of Oyo High Court has granted an ex-parte motion restraining the Department of State Security (DSS) and Attorney General of the Federation from arresting, intimidating, harassing, and blocking bank accounts of Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
The order was granted following an ex-parte motion moved by his lawyer Chief Yomi Aliu (SAN) at the court on Wednesday.
The motion developed from the originating motion seeking N500 billion damages for invasion of his house in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on July 1.
Aliu expressed confidence the AGF Abubakar Malami (SAN) will not disobey the court order, stressing that it was given directly against his office.
Speaking to journalists after the court proceedings, Mr Aliu said “The court has ordered that he must not be arrested, detained, killed in the next 14 days”.
Channels Televisio reports that the lawyer also said that his accounts should not be blocked.
The court order comes the same day when the DSS produced all 12 detained aides of Mr Igboho before the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The apprehended aides have been accused of stockpiling arms to cause chaos in the country.
Hearing in the suit was adjourned to August 18.
