Oyo High Court has stopped the federal government of Nigeria from arresting Igboho and blocking his bank account.
Gatekeepers News reports that Oyo High Court has granted an ex-parte motion restraining the Department of State Security (DSS) and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) from arresting, intimidating, harassing, and blocking bank accounts of Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
Justice Ladiean Akintola granted the order after an ex-parte motion was moved by Igboho’s lawyer, Yomi Aliu at the court on Wednesday.
This originated from the motion seeking N500 billion damages for invasion of the activist’s house in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on July 1.
Aliu has, however, expressed confidence that the AGF, Abubakar Malami (SAN) will not disobey the court order, noting that it was given directly against his office.
The hearing of the case was adjourned to August 18.
