FG May File Fresh Charges Against Sunday Igboho

The Federal Government may file a fresh action against Yoruba secessionist agitator, Sunday Adeyemo,also known as Sunday Igboho, following the judgment of Oyo State High Court which awarded twenty billion naira in damages in his favour.

Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, said the federal government had the right to appeal the judgment or file a fresh charge.

The judge, Ladiran Akintola, had awarded the money as an exemplary and aggravated damages against the AGF and the State Security Service over the invasion of Adeyemo’s home in Ibadan, on July first.
However, Mr. Malami said the position of the federal government on the judgment was about law and jurisdiction.
