Igboho’s Lawyer Reacts To FG’s Plan To File Fresh Charges

Yomi Aliyyu, a counsel to Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Igboho, has reacted to the Federal Government’s plan to appeal a judgement against his client.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, had told NAN in New York that the Federal Government may file fresh charges against the agitator despite the N20 billion in damages awarded in his favour.

An Oyo State High Court judge, Ladiran Akintola, had awarded the money as “an exemplary and aggravated damages” against the AGF and the Department of State Services, over the invasion of Igboho’s home in Ibadan on July 1.

Malami said the position of the Federal Government on the judgment was about “law and jurisdiction”.

The court had awarded N20 billion against DSS for the “illegal” invasion of Igboo’s home in Ibadan on July 1.
