Court Rejects Govt’s Request To Dismiss Igboho’s Suit

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – An Oyo State High Court in Ibadan yesterday rejected a request by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami (SAN) to stop hearing a suit instituted against the Federal Government by Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemi(aka Sunday Igboho).

Adeyemi had filed the suit challenging the invasion of his Ibadan residence on July 1 by operatives of the Department of State Services(DSS), a Federal Government agency.

In Abuja, the Federal High Court clarified that a judge was on the ground to sign an August 4 bail warrant of the aides and associates of the agitator by Justice Obiora Egwuatu.

It blamed their counsel for failing to approach Justice A.R. Mohammed, who alternates as a vacation judge, for the release of the detainees.

Malami had in his motion on notice raised a preliminary objection against Adeyemi’s suit.

He argued that the Oyo State High Court lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the matter.

The Attorney-General was represented in the court yesterday by a team of 10 lawyers led by Abdulahi Abubakar. On the team were Adekola Olawoye (SAN) and Oladipo Olasope (SAN).

Malami asked for a time extension to enable him to file further processes in opposition to Igboho’s application.

But the motion was opposed by Igboho’s counsel, led by Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN) because time is of the essence.
