The State Security Service (SSS), on Wednesday, produced the 12 detained Yoruba Nation agitators accused along with Sunday ‘Igboho’ Adeyemo, before the Abuja Division Federal High Court, in compliance with its earlier order.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu had, on July 23, ordered the security agency to present the detainees in court following an ex parte motion moved by counsel to the 12 applicants, Pelumi Olahengbesi, to seek the enforcement of their fundamental rights.

Although the SSS had, on two occasions, failed to produce them in court, the security outfit today, August 4, brought the 12 detainees before the court to show cause why they should not be released on bail.

On the last adjourned date, the SSS produced only eight out of the 12 suspects in court.
