Igboho’s Associates Fail to Meet Bail Conditions
The 12 detained associates of Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo ( Igboho), also knonw as Sunday Igboho, spent last weekend in the cells of the Department of State Services (DSS) despite the bail granted them last Wednesday by a Federal High Court, Abuja.
According to their lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, the conditions attached to the bail could not be immediately met, explaining that efforts were being made to perfect the bail by today.
“We had thought that, by the judge’s pronouncement in the open court, we were required to produce only four sureties. But when we sought clarification later, we were told we need to produce two sureties for each of them,” Olajengbesi said in Abuja.
He added:”So, we are working to get 24 people in all. We do not intend to return to the court to ask for a variation. There are many people who are willing to support and who believe in the cause they are fighting. So, we are working to ensure they are out by Monday(today).”
The 12 were arrested during the DSS’ raid on Igboho’s residence in Ibadan, Oyo State on July 1.
Justice Eguatu on Wednesday granted bail to eight of them, whose bail application was not challenged by the DSS, at N5million each.
The judge then granted bail at N10million each, for the other four, whose application was challenged by the DSS.

Supreme Court: Suspense as APC leaders wait on Buhari
The last may not have been heard of the cloud of uncertainty surrounding the legality of Yobe Governor, Mai Mala Buni, serving as chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) following the resolution of party stakeholders to allow President Muhammadu Buhari decide what becomes of his headship in the party when he returns from his London trip.
Though APC governors, under the umbrella of Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), passed vote of confidence in Governor Buni, sources told Daily Sun that they did so, in the interim, to fly a kite and paper the crack within the party while waiting for the President final verdict.
It was learnt that the governors forum and party camps adopted patch-up measures to stabilise the situation until the President returns before taking a final decision on the issue.
It was further gathered that part of the problems which deepened the crisis was the rejection of popular suggestions to throw the congresses open instead of settling for a consensus arrangement, a development which angered stakeholders like Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, who escalated the situation.
“All that has been done to this extent were just measures to tarry awhile for Mr. President to return. The tension and uncertainty surrounding Governor Buni’s future in the party is still a serious concern to many party stakeholders. The initial decision was to discontinue with the rest of the congress activities until Mr. President returns from his trip, but we had to jettison it because such a decision might send the wrong signal.
