An Oyo State High court has ordered the Federal Government of Nigeria to pay Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, a.k.a. Sunday Igboho, the sum of N20 billion.
Justice Ladiran Akintola awarded the sum on Friday as compensation for the invasion of Igboho’s house and for what was described as exemplary and aggravated damage done against the activist.
Akintola described DSS’ action as “arbitrary aggression and prejudices” against Igboho.
Recall that the residence of the Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Igboho was invaded by soldiers on the 1st of July.
Igboho filed the application, through his counsel, Yomi Alliyu, to enforce his fundamental human rights, pursuant to Sections 33-46 of the 1999 Constitution as amended and relevant articles of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights.
