DSS Releases Two of Sunday Igboho’s Aides

The Department of State Security (DSS) has released another 2 of the Oduduwa nation agitator, Sunday Igboho’s, aides on Friday, from detention after 60 Days.

This was made known to reporters by the detainees’ Legal counsel, Pelumi Olajengbesi who saw the release as the beginning of freedom to speech and of association for the average Nigerian.

Earlier, the Department of State Service had set free 8 out of the 12 aides of Sunday Igboho summarily arrested on July 1, 2021 after the security agents had launched an assault on the agitator and his cohorts at his residence.

The release was obtained as a result of a federal High Court’ order which granted bail to the 12 detainees as the presiding Judge, Justice Obiora Egwuatu saw that the detainees had met all the criteria to be granted bail.

However, Idowu Awo, the legal representing the DSS was dissatisfied with the decision of Justice Egwuatu as he alleged that four of the detained cohorts of Igboho were into criminal activities which could cause unrest in the society and might lead to more loss of lives for innocent indigenes of Oyo state were Igboho resides.

Furthermore, Barr. Awo had filed an application for the continued detention of the Oyo state born agitator’s cohorts which with the recent release of two other cohorts seem not to have been granted or not yet processed.

Tajudeen Irinloye and Uthman Adelabu were the two aides of Yoruba nation agitator recently released making a total of 10 detainees released with two persons still in detention and it is uncertain when their release will be secured as the legal representatives are still pursuing their case in court in order to secure their release in no time inasmuch as the DSS legal counsel alleges that their release will stall effective investigations to the activities of the detained agitator Sunday Igboho.
