An Oyo state High Court has ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) to pay N20 billion to self-acclaimed Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
Justice Ladiran Akintola gave the order in a suit filed by Igboho, who is currently in detention in neighbouring Benin Republic.
The payment is for damages done to his Soka home in Ibadan during the July 1 invasion by the DSS.Igboho had demanded N500billion for the damages done to his home. The court declared the raid illegal and criticized the DSS for “arbitrary aggression and prejudices”.
The judge also dismissed an application challenging its jurisdiction for hearing the suit.
Igboho was arrested in Benin Republic while trying to escape to Germany following the invasion of his residence by the DSS on July 1, 2021.
