The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana, has condemned the recent attack condoned by the operatives of the Department of State Services (Dss) on the Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Igboho.
Recall that Sunday Igboho’s residence was attacked by the DSS who was believed to have abducted his wife and killed 7.
Falana has publicly condemned their action and labelled it as criminal act. He revealed that there’s no single phase in the constitution was it approved a midnight attack or even abduction by the government.
He also outlined that what the DSS did was nothing but a criminal activity and urged them to be careful.
In his words, his said:
“There is no law in Nigeria that allows you to arrest somebody in the dead of the night when you are not planning a coup and you are not an armed robber.”
“There is no provision unless a crime is being committed in the night; you cannot go there and arrest.”
“Take Ibadan, for instance, the invasion of the home of Igboho happened in the night, and for all-day, everybody was wondering who did (what), and that seven people were killed. People were arrested and abducted at 2:00 a.m., the governor of the state wasn’t aware.”
“Now, Sunday Adeyemo has said he didn’t have any gun in his house. Yet, the DSS paraded guns and other ammunition. All the controversies would have been unnecessary if the DSS had behaved like a modern, civilized agency. These are very dangerous legacies of military dictatorship in our country.”
