The Department of State Services has filed a fresh remand application at the Federal High Court in Abuja, against four of the 12 arrested aides of embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

The DSS in a motion marked FHC/ABJ/CS/647/2021 is seeking the approval of the court to nullify the bail earlier granted to four aides of Igboho.

This is coming after Justice Obiora Egwuatu of the Abuja High Court had ordered that the 12 detained aides of Igboho be granted bail, after they had spent 32 days in the detention facility of the DSS.

The judge in his ruling had granted four of the applicants bail in the sum of N10 million each with two sureties in like sum, while the remaining eight were granted bail in the sum of N5 million with one surety each.

Meanwhile, in a lawsuit filed by the DSS lawyer, Idowu Awo, the secret police is praying the court 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”.

Awo, in his argument told the court that the bail granted to the four aides of Igboho should be nullified on the grounds of their alleged involvement in the stockpiling of arms and other criminal activities.

He argued that four aides should be remanded in prison in the interest of justice and national security.
