The Department of State Services (DSS) has been ordered to pay N20 billion to self-proclaimed Yoruba Nation spokesman Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
In a suit filed by Igboho, who is currently detained in neighbouring Benin Republic, Justice Ladiran Akintola issued the order.
Additionally, the judge dismissed an application challenging the suit’s jurisdiction.
Following the invasion of his residence by the DSS on July 1, 2021, Igboho was arrested in Benin Republic as he attempted to flee to Germany.
SAN Yomi Alliu, his attorney, challenged the raid in court.
Some of Igboho’s aides who were arrested during the raid have been released, except for two who were charged with terrorism.
Igboho is currently incarcerated in a Benin Republic prison awaiting the verdict of the Beninese court.
