Court orders FG to pay Igboho N20bn for unlawful invasion

By our reporter/ A high court in Oyo state on Friday ordered the federal government to pay Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, the sum of N20 billion.

Justice Ladiran Akintola who gave the order said the sum is a compensation for the invasion of Igboho’s house and for what was described as exemplary and aggravated damage done against the activist.

Igboho had sued the AGF, the DSS, and the director of the DSS in Oyo state, demanding N5.5 billion in damages over the raid on his Ibadan home.

Two persons were reported killed, while 12 others were arrested following the raid.

The Yoruba nation agitator is currently undergoing trial at a court in Benin Republic for flouting the country’s immigration laws.
