Nearly 4 Months Of Incarceration, 2 Sunday Igboho’s Aides Released By DSS 

The Department of State Services (DSS) has released the remaining two aides of embattled Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known Sunday Igboho. The duo has been in detention since July 1, 2021 when Igboho’s residence was attacked by the DSS.

The detainees are Jamiu Noah Oyetunji and Amudat Habibat Babatunde, popularly known as Lady K.

One of the counsels to Igboho, Pelumi Olajengbesi, confirmed their release in a statement, on Friday.

The statement said, “This is to officially announce the release of Babatunde Amudat Abibat, aka Lady-K, and Jamiu Noah Oyetunji, the remaining two Sunday Igboho’s aides, from the State Security Service Custody today, 22nd October, 2021.

“While the matter is still a subject of litigation, we shall have no comment further on this for now”.

It will be recalled that the DSS had during a midnight raid of Igboho’s Ibadan residence arrested 12 of the activist’s associates and whisked them away to Abuja, where they were kept in custody.

But 10 out of the 12 arrested associates were released after court granted them bail.

The secret police, however, held on to Oyetunji and Babatunde, and filed a new five-count terrorism charges against them.
