The federal government is to appeal the judgment of an Oyo State High Court which awarded N20 billion in damages to Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, following the invasion of his home by the DSS on July 1, 2021.

Igboho was awarded the money after his lawyer, Mr Yomi Alliyu (SAN)  filed a N500 billion fundamental human rights enforcement suit against the AGF, DSS and Director of the DSS in Oyo State over the incident.

Ruling on the case, Justice Ladiran Akintola said the DSS exhibited an unprofessional conduct during the invasion and also violated Igboho’s human rights.

Reacting to the ruling, the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami, said efforts were already being made to commence the process of appealing the judgement.
