Yoruba Nation: Igboho Wins Big As Court orders Malami to Pay Him N50,000

A high Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo state has awarded the sum of N50,000 against the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami.

The court also extended an order restraining the Department of State Security Services, DSS from arresting Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Igboho.

Justice Ladiran Akintola issued the order against the AGF at a resumed hearing on Wednesday.The AGF, who was represented in court on Wednesday by his counsel, Abdullahi Abubakar, prayed the court to vacate the restraining order.

Igboho’s lawyers had asked for a cost of N250,000 to be awarded against Malami for filing his response to the suit late but the court awarded only N50,000.

Malami, through his lawyers also prayed the court to dismiss the case filed by Igboho before the court altogether because the court lacked jurisdiction to hear the matter.

They argued that Igboho’s claims of unlawful killing, the tort of trespass, assault, and battery could not be brought under Fundamental Right (Enforcement Procedure) Rules 2009.

Justice Akintola adjourned the ruling on Malami’s application to August 30.
