Sunday Igoho

The federal government has confirmed it will appeal the judgment of an Oyo state high court, which on Friday awarded N20billion in damages to Yoruba nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo better known as Sunday Igboho.

Igboho had sued Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), the Department of State Services (DSS), and Director of State Services, Oyo State, demanding N5.5billion in damages over the raid on his Ibadan home on July 1.

During the raid, two people were said to be killed, while 12 of his associates were arrested.

Delivering judgment in the fundamental human rights suit on Friday, Ladiran Akintola, the judge, awarded N20 billion as exemplary and aggravated damages against the secret service.

However, Malami speaking with NAN on Friday, said the decision of the court would be appealed.

“Efforts are already being made to commence the process of appealing the judgment,” Malami was quoted to have said.
