Three Senior Advocates of Nigeria have tackled the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), and the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi, over the continued detention of 12 aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, despite meeting all bail conditions. The senior advocates – Femi Falana, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa and Ifedayo Adedipe — said the DSS is inviting anarchy and lawlessness into the country by not obeying the order of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja which granted bail to the 12 detained aides of the separatist leader also known as Sunday Igboho. According to the detainees’ lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi; the presiding judge, Justice Obiora Egwuatu had signed the Release Order of all the 12 detainees when they fully met their bail conditions last week including the provision of 24 sureties.

Sunday Igboho release

Three Senior Advocates of Nigeria have tackled the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), and the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi, over the continued detention of 12 aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, despite meeting all bail conditions.

The senior advocates – Femi Falana, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa and Ifedayo Adedipe — said the DSS is inviting anarchy and lawlessness into the country by not obeying the order of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja which granted bail to the 12 detained aides of the separatist leader also known as Sunday Igboho.

According to the detainees’ lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi; the presiding judge, Justice Obiora Egwuatu had signed the Release Order of all the 12 detainees when they fully met their bail conditions last week including the provision of 24 sureties.

The detainees are Abdullateef Onaolapo, Tajudeen Irinloye, Dikeola Ademola, Ayobami Donald, Uthman Adelabu, Olakunle Oluwapelumi, Raji Kazeem, Taiwo Tajudeen, Amudat Babatunde, Abideen Shittu, Jamiu Oyetunji, and Bamidele Sunday.

The detainees have spent over 60 days in DSS custody since they were arrested around 1am on July 1, 2021, when the secret police “raided” Igboho’s Ibadan residence in a Gestapo style, killing two other associates of the activist in a “gun duel.”

The 12 detainees had approached the court to seek their release.
