Recall that Adeyemo’s lawyer Yomi Alliyu (SAN) had dragged the DSS to court after the secret police invaded his home at about 1:30am on July 1, 2021.

Igboho was awarded the money after Alliyu had 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, Malami said efforts are already being made to commence the process of appealing the judgment.
