A group, The Yoruba Nation Global Directorate (YNGD) has threatened to drag Departments of State Service(DSS) to court should it failed to release unconditionally the 12 detained aides of Sunday Adeyemo.
The group stated this in
a statement made available to newsmen in Akure, Ondo State capital, on Tuesday.
Describing as illegal, the arrest and detention of Amoda Babatunde(a.k a Lady K) and 11 others by the Federal government, the Directorate condemned denial of the 12 of legal representation by the ‘Nigerian government.’
YNGD alleged that its attorney, Barr. Ayo Ogunleye, was denied access to the detained aides after spending several hours on Monday, July 5, 2021 at the office of the DSS in Abuja.
The group affirmed that its’ lawyer would take necessary legal action to press home the release of his clients.
The statement reads in parts: “You will recall that about 200 DSS men and women and the Nigerian army invaded the residence of Chief Sunday Adeyemo (alias Igboho) on 1st July 2021 around 2.00am. The road to his home was condoned off and two people were killed. The corpse of those killed are yet to be released to their families.
“Subsequently, the DSS declared Chief Sunday Adeyemo wanted. Chief Adeyemo is a human rights activist who has been defending his people against kidnapping, killing and raping of women and young girls by the Fulani herdsmen and other terrorists groups in southwest Yoruba nation of Nigeria and who the Federal Government have openly been supporting. All efforts to get to the DSS to explain why the suspects were denied proved abortive.”
