Written by Website Admin on August 30, 2022
The Court of Appeal Oyo State has nullified the 20-billion-naira damages awarded to Yoruba Nation agitator, SUNDAY ADEYEMO, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, last year after the violent invasion of his residence in Ibadan.
ADEYEMO had gone to court challenging the action which led to the death of some of his aides.
In its sitting, the Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan nullified the judgement of an Oyo State High Court which awarded 20-billion-naira damages to Sunday Igboho.
Delivering the judgement in an appeal filed by the Attorney General of the Federation, State Security Service and Director, State Security Service in Oyo State, Justice MUSLIM HASSAN held that Justice LADIRAN AKINTOLA, who delivered the judgement on September 17, 2021, acted on the wrong principles of law in awarding the cost to IGBOHO.
He said that Justice AKINTOLA cannot assess damages claimed by IGBOHO using his own conceived parameters.
