Department of State Services has reportedly released two more aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho.

According to ThePunch, secret police released two of the aides on Friday after over 60 days, as confirmed by the detainees’ lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi.

Recall that on August 30, 2021, that Department of State Security released eight of the 12 aides of the incarcerated agitator also known as Sunday Igboho.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu of Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had on August 4, 2021, granted bail to the 12 detainees.

DSS, however, refused to release the remaining four persons, contrary to an order of the court that granted bail to the entire 12 aides of the Yoruba Nation agitator in the custody of the agency, despite meeting their bail conditions.

DSS lawyer, Idowu Awo claimed that they were heavily involved in the alleged offence of arms stockpiling and other criminal activities of their boss, Igboho.

Awo filed a remand application for the four detainees saying their release would affect investigation.

He also approached an Appeal Court sitting in Abuja to revoke the bail earlier granted to the four persons.

The detainees were arrested around 1am on July 1, 2021, when the secret police “raided” Igboho’s Ibadan residence in a Gestapo style, killing two other associates of the activist in a “gun duel.”

The 12 detainees had approached the court to seek their release.
