LAGOS AUGUST 31ST (NEWSRANGERS)-Eight of the 12 aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, have regained their freedom after  spending  61 arduous days in the custody of the Department of State Services.

 DSS released the eight detainees on Monday, While their  lawyer Pelumi Olajengbesi, confirmed to our correspondent.

However the DSS  refused to release four of the detainees.

The freed persons appeared at a press conference on Monday afternoon with their lawyer.

Speaking at a press conference after their release in Abuja, Olajengbesi insisted that the remaining four of his clients must be freed because they had been granted bail by the court.

He also stated that the DSS must account for the two associates of Igboho killed during the bloody raid of July 1, 2021.

African Examiner had earlier reported that Justice Obiora Egwuatu of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on August 4, 2021 granted bail to the 12 detained aides of the separatist leader.

They had met their bail conditions including the provision of 24 sureties but the DSS lawyer, Idowu Awo, kicked against the bail granted by Justice Egwuatu to four of the detainees, claiming that they were heavily involved in the alleged offence of arms stockpiling and other criminal activities of their boss, Igboho.

They were arrested around 1am on July 1, 2021, when the secret police “raided” Igboho’s Ibadan residence in a Gestapo style, killing two other associates of the activist in a “gun duel.”
