The Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday released eight aides of a Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho.
The aides’ lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, confirmed their release to newsmen at a media briefing in Abuja. He said they were released on Monday.
Those released were – Abideen Shittu, Abdullateef Onaolapo, Ayobami Donald, Olakunle Oluwapelumi, Dikeola Ademola, Bamidele Sunday, Raji Kazeem, and Taiwo Tajudeen.
However, four others – Tajudeen Irinloye, Uthman Adelabu, Amudat Babatunde, and Jamiu Oyetunji – are still in detention.
The lawyer said he has demanded for the immediate release of the remaining four activists.
He equally urged the DSS to account for two associates of the Yoruba Nation agitator killed during the raid
The 12 aides of Igboho were arrested on July 1 during a raid on the activist’s home in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
