The Department of State Services (DSS) is filing a remand application at the Federal High Court in Abuja, praying the court to nullify the bail earlier granted to 4 of the twelve detained aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho.
DSS counsel, Idowu Awo who filed the motion on Monday, August 9, asked Justice Obiora Egwuatu to cancel the bail granted to Amudat Babatunde, Bamidele Sunday and Abideen Shittu, Jamiu Oyetunji.
Awo prayed the court to remand the four detainees “pending their arraignment during court vacation.”
Reacting, the lawyer to the detainees, Pelumi Olajengbesi, told Punch that the remand application by the DSS was “laughable”.
Olajengbesi 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.”
