COURT ORDERS FG TO PAY SUNDAY IGBOHO N20B- 17th Sep 2021, 12:03pm
An Oyo state High Court sitting in Ibadan, Friday requested the Federal Government of Nigeria to pay the amount of N20billion to Chief Sunday Adeyemo otherwise called Igboho as harms for the attack of his home.
The court additionally excused an application documented by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, moving its locale to hear charges against Nigerian government offices.
The court was relied upon to convey judgment or administering on the N500 billion key common freedoms case established by the Yoruba Nation lobbyist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho against the Nigerian Government and Department of State Services (DSS).
Igboho through his attorney, Yomi Alliyu, documented a suit testing the intrusion of his home in Ibadan on July 1 by agents of the DSS, otherwise called the State Security Service (SSS) or mystery police.
Igboho is, among others, looking for a request for the court to announce the attack of his home by DSS agents as illicit and an encroachment on his crucial basic liberties. The three respondents are Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), as the primary respondent, SSS as the subsequent respondent and Director of SSS in Oyo State as the third respondent.
Advice for the AGF, Abubakar Abdullahi had documented an application testing the capacity of a state High Court to hear the exercises of Nigerian government offices. However, refering to a few decisions by the Supreme and Appeal courts in regard of the capacity of the state high court to hear such cases, Justice Ladiran Akintola said the attack of the place of the candidate disregarded his crucial basic liberties as specified in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as ammended.
"Sadly, this court isn't a Father Christmas and can't grant the amount of N500 billion as mentioned by the candidate yet the court retrained the respondent from capturing or bugging the candidate. He has right to his free development as contain in area 35.1 (a)(b) of the 1999 constitution as altered."
