The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday, adjourned the suit brought by the 12 detained aides of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, to August 4.
Justice Obiora Egwuatu granted the applicants’ lawyer, Pelumi Olagbenjesi, the leave to amend his processes to correct the names of the applicants.
There was confusion in court regarding the names of the eight applicants produced. Thus, Olagbejensi applied to amend his processes to reflect their correct names.
The Department of State Services (DSS) only produced eight out of the 12 detained aides of Sunday Igboho.
Justice Egwuatu ordered had last Friday ordered the DSS to produce the 12 detained aides of Igboho in court to enable the court inquire into the circumstances surrounding their arrest and detention.
The judge also ordered the DSS to show cause why Igboho’s aides should not be admitted to bail.
DSS’ lawyer, I.Awl, had told the court last Friday that some of the names on the court order were different from the names of the persons they had arrested on July 1, 2021 at Igboho’s house.
Awo had also told the court that apart from the second, fourth and twelfth applicants, the identities of the rest of the applicants on the court’s order do not have the persons bearing those names.
