Court nullifies Igboho’s N20b judgment against DSS

Justice Muslim Hassan of the Ibadan Division of the Court of Appeal, Oyo State Tuesday, nullified the N20 billion exemplary and aggravated damages awarded to Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, against the Department of State Security.

The court also set aside the judgment that declared the attack on Igboho’s house illegal, describing the award for damages against the DSS as outrageous.

In his ruling, Justice Hassan stated that the Oyo State High Court ignored the grounds for the case in acquiring jurisdiction and that the judge should not have decided on the award of damages based on his own preferences.
