The Department of State Services, DSS on Monday, produced eight out of the twelve detained associates of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho to the Federal High Court in Abuja. Justice Obiora Egwuatu had earlier ordered the Secret Police to produce in court the twelve applicants for hearing on their bail application. There was initial confusion in court at the resumed hearing of the case, regarding the names of the eight applicants produced by DSS,which prompted the intervention of applicants counsel, Pelumi Olagbejensi to apply for court leave to amend his processes to reflect their correct names. Justice Egwuatu granted the application after DSS counsel, David Awo failed to raise objection against the application. Plaintiff counsel provided more insight of what transpired in court. There was a mild drama between journalists and DSS operatives outside the court room when the applicants were being brought to court. The operatives made efforts to prevent cameramen from getting the clips of the Igboho’s associates and ending up seizing a mobile phone belonging to one of the journalists which was later released. Meanwhile, hearing on the matter has been adjourned till Wednesday 4th August.
