He also prayed the court to vacate the order restraining the arrest, intimation, and blocking of Igboho’sbank accounts, adding that the order should have a lifespan of seven days rather than being perpetual.
In his argument, counsel to DSS, Mr. T. Nurudeen, said that the applicant was yet to serve any counter-affidavit on his client and that the procedures of service must be observed for a fair hearing.
Igboho’s counsel, Alliyu (SAN), leading Mr. Kola Olawoye (SAN), and Mr. Dipo Olasope (SAN) objected to granting of an adjournment.
Alliyu said that the AGF was served since Aug. 25 and only needed five days to respond to the counter-affidavit and urged the court not to grant the adjournment sought.
In his ruling, presiding Justice Ladiran Akintola noted that the rules on enforcement of fundamental human rights suit do not accommodate luxury of time because the life of the applicant was at stake.
Akintola adjourned the case to Sept. 7 for a hearing of all applications and extended his order of interim injunction restraining Igboho’s arrest and blocking of his account.
