Justice Ladiran Akintola who delivered the ruling described DSS’ action as “arbitrary aggression and prejudices” against Igboho.

Igboho was awarded the money after his lawyer, Mr Yomi Alliyu (SAN) 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.
