Following the release warrants issued by Federal High Court in Abuja, Department of State Service (DSS) has released eight out of the 12 associates of Chief Sunday Adeyemo Igboho.
The Igboho boys were arrested and detained by the DSS since July 1, 2021.
Counsel to the Igboho boys, Pelumi Olajengbesi expressed the hope that the remaining four of the detainees would be released within the week after resolving some technical issues regarding to their release.
Olajengbesi lamented that the DSS could not come up with any charge against the detainees after 60 days of detention and added that the DSS could longer arrest any of the released detainees as they have not committed any offence to warrant such.
As for the remaining four still in the custody of the DSS, Olajengbesi said: “We will go to DSS to ask for their release and if they refuse, we will not hesitate to carry our earlier threat.
“We will not relent in ensuring that the remaining four of the detainees are released by the DSS, because justice for one is justice for all,” he said.
