DSS Bows, Produces Detained Yoruba Nation Activists In Court


    The Yoruba Nation activists arrested on July 2 by the Department of the State Services (DSS), were on Monday brought before a Federal High Court, in Abuja.

    This followed a fresh order made by Justice Obiora Egwuatu on July 29 that the activists must be brought to court.

    The judge had first ordered the DSS to produce the activists  when the case first came up on July 23.

    But, at the resumed sitting on the case on July 29, the Service disobeyed the court order. Justice Egwuatu subsequently made another ruling that the 12 must be produced on August 2nd.

    The suspects were brought to court in an 18-seater Toyota Hiace Bus marked, Abuja 785 KWL, under heavy security escort by DSS operatives.

    At the time of this report, the suspects were still being held in the bus at the inner car park of the court premises due to the non-arrival of the DSS counsel in court.

    DSS lawyer, Mr Idowu Awo was said to be held up in traffic in an undisclosed location.

    The detainees are: Abdullateef Ofeyagbe, Amuda Babatunde (alias Lady K), Tajudeen Erinoyen, Diekola Ademola, Abideen Shittu, Jamiu Noah, Ayobami Donald, Adelabe Usman, Oluwapelumi Kunle, Raji Kazeem, Taiwo Opeyemi and Bamidele

    Their lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi had told the court that they had been kept incommunicado since their arrest.
