The Department of State Services (DSS) has responded to a court order granted on Friday, September 17, ordering it to pay N20 billion to Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho.
The order was issued by Justice Ladiran Akintola on Friday, September 17, in response to a suit filed by Igboho, who is now detained in the Benin Republic.
Igboho had sought N500 billion in compensation for the damage to his residence.
The court ruled that the raid was unconstitutional and chastised the DSS for its “arbitrary violence and prejudices.”
In addition, the judge denied an application challenging its jurisdiction to hear the case.
In response to the judgment, DSS spokesman Peter Afunanya told Daily Trust that they had yet to be contacted by the court.
“The court may not have told us. As a result, my official reaction is that I have no comments.”
