The counsel for the detained aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, Pelumi Olajengbesi, on Friday alleged that the Department of State Services feeds them with a soup known as “engine oil”.
The lawyer who disclosed that he had access to his clients on Friday for the first time after they were arrested four weeks ago, disclosed that they had diarrhoea after eating the soup with Fufu or Eba.
Olajengbesi further stated that he and two other members of the legal team met with four of the 12 detained persons today.
He said, “It is important to state that their current situation is a classical definition of wholesome human rights abuse. Their health is, sadly, poor and in a sorry situation.”
“They are made to sleep on the bare floor and are badly beaten before medical treatment is accorded them to heal and conceal injuries from the torture.”
“Lady K, in particular, seems to have sustained fracture on her left leg and is in serious pains. She has not had a change of clothes and folds herself to sleep in the terrible cell.”
“A larger per cent of them have high blood pressure issues as confirmed by the SSS clinic. They are fed with a liquid they call ‘engine oil’ as their soup for their food. Their normal routine is to eat and resume the toilet where they purge for long.”
“They’re being treated badly and worse than animals, and we did our best in assuring and keeping them upbeat and in high spirits before making our exit.”
