Igboho

The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and the Department of State Security (DSS) have been barred from arresting, harassing, intimidating and blocking bank accounts of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

Justice Ladiean Akintola of the Oyo High Court on Wednesday, approved an ex-parte motion.

The ex-parte motion was 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 followed the originating motion seeking N500bn 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.
