DSS frees eight Igboho supporters — after 60 days in custody


The Department of State Services (DSS), today, released eight supporters of Sunday Adeyemo, a youth leader popularly known as Sunday Igboho, from custody.

The freed persons appeared at a media briefing this afternoon with Pelumi Olajengbesi, their lawyer.

The DSS is, however, yet to release four of the detainees.

The arrested supporters were moved to the federal capital territory (FCT), where they have been in detention.

Obiora Egwatu, judge of a federal high court in Abuja, had granted bail to the supporters.

But the DSS filed an appeal challenging the bail granted to the released persons.
