An Abuja Federal High Court has granted the bail application brought before it by the 12 detained aides of Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho.
Justice Obiora Egwuatu ordered all the detained aides to be admitted to bail.
He gave the order after a recess that lasted for over two hours, following the submissions of the counsels on both sides.
The lawyer to the detained aides, Pelumi Olajengbesi had prayed the court to admit the Igboho aides to bail unconditionally.
The DSS lawyer, I. Awo, told the court that he was not opposing the bail of eight of the applicants.
However, he vehemently opposed the bail of the other four applicants on the ground that the DSS’ investigation has revealed their high complicity in the offence of arms stockpiling.
The lawyer to Igboho aides, Olajengbesi, prayed the court to discountenance the argument of the DSS as it was unknown to Nigerian law.
Olajengbesi urged the court to release aides on bail and assured the court that they will ensure a reasonable surety to give the DSS assurance that the applicants will be available for further investigations.
