Federal High Court grants bail to 12 persons arrested at Sunday Igboho’s residence

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja today, granted bail to the 12 persons that were arrested at the residence of Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.


Justice Obiora Egwuatu admitted the Applicants to bail after he overruled the Department of State Services,  which opposed the release of four out of the 12 persons that have been in detention since July 1.


The DSS had claimed that its investigations revealed that the four detained associates of Igboho were deeply involved in the stockpiling of arms.
It however did not oppose the release of eight others it said had minimal involvement in Igboho’s alleged criminal activities.
