The Department of State Security Services (DSS) has revealed that embattled Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho is under repatriation procedure back to the country.

 

The security agency disclosed this in a series of affidavits signed and presented before the High Court on Monday, November 22 in Ibadan by one of its operatives, Johnson Oluwole.

 

Recall an attempt by the DSS to arrest Igboho at his Ibadan home in Oyo State capital had failed earlier.

 

He, however, fell into the hand of the operatives in Cotonou, Benin Republic on July 19, 2021 while attempting to fly to Germany.

 

Igboho’s counsel, Chief Yomi Aliyu, SAN, had filed a suit against the DSS on Igboho’s behalf at the High Court in Ibadan.

 

The court had then ordered the DSS to pay Igboho the sum of ₦20 billion Naira as exemplary damages.

 

The affidavit titled “Applicants affidavit in support of its motion on notice for stay of execution of judgement of this suit No/M/435/2021 and an injunction pending the determination of the pending appeal” partly reads, “That it is a fact that the applicant Chief Sunday Igboho has been declared a fugitive by the Nigerian Police Force sometimes in the month of June 2021.

 

“That it is a notorious fact that the applicant was arrested on the 19th of July 2021 and is currently in the custody of the Beninese security agents undergoing extradition procedure back to Nigeria.

 

“That it is fact that the applicant is under investigation by the security agents for treasonable act that is inimical to the cooperate existence of the country.

 

“That it is a fact that it will be inequitable for this Honorable court to refuse this application for Stay against the background that the applicant is a fugitive undergoing extradition processing in Benin Republic.”
