The federal government of Nigeria has disclosed that it won’t pay the N20 billion awarded to Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Igboho over the raiding of the Department of State Service (DSS) operatives.
The federal government has disclosed that it’s not going to pay the damages but it’s going to appeal the decision of the high court in Ibadan, Oyo State.
The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) made this known on Friday after the ruling of the high court.
Recall we earlier reported about the court case of Sunday Igboho as the Oyo State high court ruled that the federal government should pay N20 Billion to the Yoruba Nation activist for raiding his residence.
Sunday Igboho filed a lawsuit against DSS secret police through his lawyers and the judge, Justice Ladiran Akintola described the invasion as illegal and prejudice.
