The Department of State Services (DSS) has filed terrorism charges against two supporters of Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho.

The agency in suit number FHC/ABJ/CR/305/2021, which was dated August 31, 2021, preferred a five-count terrorism charge against Noah Oyetunji and Amudat Babatunde.

The suit was filed through the DSS lawyer, SM Bello.

The DSS alleged that Oyetunji was in possession of firearms for terrorism-related activities while Babatunde promoted terrorist acts through her Facebook account.

The court has not fixed any date for hearing.

DSS operatives had, on July 1, raided Igboho’s residence in Oyo and arrested 12 of his supporters.

The arrested supporters were moved to the federal capital territory (FCT), where they were kept in detention.

Obiora Egwatu, judge of a federal high court in Abuja, had granted bail to the supporters.

But the DSS filed an appeal challenging the bail granted to four out of the 12 persons.

According to Idowu Awo, counsel to the DSS, the four persons were still under investigation.

On August 30, the DSS released eight of Igboho supporters. A lawyer in the team confirmed to TheCable that two other persons have regained freedom, leaving two in detention.
