An Oyo State High Court has granted an ex-parte motion restraining Nigeria’s secret police; the Department of State Security (DSS) and the Attorney General of the Federation; Abubakar Malami (SAN) from arresting, intimidating, harassing, and blocking bank accounts of Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

Delivering the order on Wednesday, Justice Ladiean Akintola of the state high court ordered that DSS and the AGF should desist from blocking accounts belonging to Mr. Sunday Adeyemo.
