Oyogist has learned that a Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana, has frowned at the raid on Sunday Igboho’s home by the operatives of the Department of State Services.

Falana, during an interview with newsmen said the DSS acted like armed robbers.

Falana said,

“There is no law in Nigeria that allows you to arrest somebody in the dead of the night when you are not planning a coup and you are not an armed robber.“There is no provision unless a crime is being committed in the night; you cannot go there and arrest.

“Take Ibadan, for instance, the invasion of the home of Igboho happened in the night, and for all-day, everybody was wondering who did (what), and that seven people were killed. People were arrested and abducted at 2:00 a.m., the governor of the state wasn’t aware.

“Now, Sunday Adeyemo has said he didn’t have any gun in his house. Yet, the DSS paraded guns and other ammunition. All the controversies would have been unnecessary if the DSS had behaved like a modern, civilized agency. These are very dangerous legacies of military dictatorship in our country.”

Igboho had earlier filed a lawsuit against the Nigerian government. as h e demanded compensation of N500 million and an apology for invading his home and vandalizing his properties.
