The Department of State Services has released two more aides of Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo, The PUNCH has learnt.
The secret police released two of the detained aides of the activist on Friday.
Their lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, confirmed their release to our correspondent.
The PUNCH had reported on August 30, 2021, that the DSS released eight of the 12 aides of the aides of the agitator also known as Sunday Igboho.
Justice Obiora Egwuatu of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on August 4, 2021 had granted bail to the 12 detainees.
They had met their bail conditions including the provision of 24 sureties but the DSS lawyer, Idowu Awo, kicked against the bail granted by Justice Egwuatu to four of the detainees, claiming that they were heavily involved in the alleged offence of arms stockpiling and other criminal activities of their boss, Igboho.
Awo had filed a remand application for the four detainees saying their release would affect investigation. He had also approached an Appeal Court sitting in Abuja to revoke the bail earlier granted to the four persons.
The detainees were arrested around 1am on July 1, 2021, when the secret police “raided” Igboho’s Ibadan residence in a Gestapo style, killing two other associates of the activist in a “gun duel.”
The 12 detainees had approached the court to seek their release.
