While the 12 associates of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho who have been in DSS cell for over a month now were waiting for the bail conditions granted them by Justice Obiora Egwuatu to be met, the Department of State Services (DSS) has filed a remand application at the Federal High Court in Abuja, asking the court to nullify the bail earlier granted to four of the 12 detained activists.
In the motion no FHC/ABJ/CS/647/2021, filed on Monday by the DSS lawyer, Idowu Awo, the DSS urged Justice Obiora Egwuatu to cancel the bail granted to Amudat Babatunde, Abideen Shittu, Jamiu Oyetunji, and Bamidele Sunday.
The DSS lawyer urged the court to remand the four detainees “pending their arraignment during court vacation”.
Pelumi Olajengbesi, lawyer of the detainees while reacting to the information said: “We have seen the new application filed by the DSS to continue the incarceration of innocent people that have been in their custody for over a month. It is laughable and turned logic upside down that after over a month in the DSS custody, the DSS still needs more days to punish them. I can assure you this will fail,” he said.
The outcome of the new remand application is yet to be known.
