On Monday, the Department of the State Services bowed to the directives of Justice Obiora Egwuatu of the Federal High Court in Abuja, compelling it to produce the twelve aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, before the court.
This is coming after the Judge ordered the secret police to produce the detained aides of the activist in court today (Monday).
Justice Obiora Egwuatu had on July 29 issued a fresh order following an appeal by the DSS counsel Mr Idowu Awo that the agency be given today to comply with the order.
According to Daily Post, the aide to the Yoruba Nation agitator were brought to court in an 18-seater Toyota Hiace Bus marked, Abuja 785 KWL.
It was reported that the detainees were brought by the secret police under heavy security escort by its operatives.
The aides were arrested when DSS officials raided Igboho’s home on July 1, but have sued on grounds that their fundamental human rights were being infringed on.
A lawyer to the arrested aides, Pelumi Olajenbesi, sued the DSS, claiming that his clients have remained underground for weeks.
