Court fixes date for Igboho Aides’ trial

The Federal High Court on Tuesday, July 20, Abuja will hear a claim filed by 12 aides of Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, against the Department of State Services (DSS).

After two judges initially rejected to take up the case when it was assigned to their courts, it was found that Justice Obiora Egwuatu is poised to rule over it.

Mirror Nigeria earlier reported that DSS operatives had arrested and detained some Igboho’s associates on July 1 2021 after a raid of Igboho’s residence in the Soka area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
