    N20bn: ‘DSS must pay’, Ilana Oodua celebrates Igboho’s triumph

    The umbrella body of the Yoruba self-determination Group, Ilana Omo Oodua, has rejoiced over the Oyo State High Court verdict ordering the Department of State Service to pay N20 billion damages to a Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, fondly called Sunday Igboho.

    The court had awarded N20 billion against DSS for the “illegal” invasion of Igboo’s home in Ibadan on July 1.

    The invasion led to the arrest of 12 Igboho’s aides, while Igboho managed to escape arrest.

    Following the raid, Igboho sued the Federal Government and demanded ₦500 million as special damages for the damage done to his house and his car and another ₦500 billion as exemplary and aggravated damages.

    Igboho also sought an order of the court directing the respondents to return all the items seized from the house.

    He listed the items to include, N2 million cash, one thousand Euros, travel documents including international passports belonging to him and his family members, gold jewelry and wristwatches, 2 mobile phones, and other items yet unknown but which were allegedly carted away by the SSS.

    Reacting to the judgement in a statement by its spokesperson, Maxwell Adeleye, Ilana Oodua commended the judiciary.

    The statement was titled, ‘N20 billion Fine Against DSS: Verdict Symbolises Triumph of Light, Truth Over Gladiators of Illegalities – Ilana Omo Oodua’.

    The group asked the DSS to pay the N20 billion damages in the interest of peace.

    Part of the statement read, “We thank the judiciary for re-affirming that self-determination is one of the fundamental human rights of the citizens that cannot be subjugated.

    “Our position is that this verdict symbolises the triumph of light and truth over darkness. Ighoho represents the light and truth, while the Nigerian state stands for illegalities.

    “Our position now is that the Nigerian Government should be honourable by respecting the verdict of a court of competent jurisdiction. The #20billion damages ordered by the court to be paid to Ighoho by the DSS must be paid with immediate effect in the interest of peace.”
