However, the DSS brought eight of the detainees before Justice Obiora Egwuatu, following the ex-parte motion moved by Counsel to the applicants, Pelumi Olajengbesi, on July 23.


The four detainees, who were not in court, include Abdullateef Ademola OnaolapoUthman Opeyemi AdelabuOluwafemi Olakunle and Opeyemi Tajudeen.


Those in court were Amudat Babatunde, aka Lady KTajudeen ErinloyeDiekola Ademola JubrilAbidemi Shittu, Jamiu Noah OyetunjiAyobami DonaldRaji Kazeem and Bamidele Sunday.



The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the motion moved by Olajengbesi, marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/647/2021, was dated July 7 and filed July 8.





When the matter was called, the applicants lawyer informed that he had a motion on notice, seeking the order of the court to amend the processes already filed.

He said the amendment was to allow him regularise the processes to reflect all that was needed after he had been able to gain accesses to his clients at the DSS facility.

The DSS Counsel, I. Awo, did not object the application.

Egwuatu, who granted the prayer, adjourned the matter until Aug. 4 for hearing of the substantive matter.

Meanwhile, Olajengbesi called the attention of the court to the fact that the security outfit did not come to the court with all the detainees.

He urged Justice Egwuatu to mandate the DSS to produce all the 12 detainees in court in the next adjourned date.
