Justice Ladiean Akintola of the Oyo High Court the order after approving an ex-parte motion moved by Igboho’s lawyer, Chief Yomi Aliu (SAN), at the court on Wednesday.
“The court has ordered that he must not be arrested, detained, or killed in the next 14 days. The account also said that his account should not be blocked,” Yomi Aliu said following the case.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that DSS launched a manhunt for the 48-year-old activist, who it declared wanted after invading Igboho’s residence around 1.34am on Thursday, July 1, following intelligence reports he was stockpiling arms.
The motion developed from the originating motion seeking N500 million compensation for invasion of his house in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, last month.
Aliu expressed confidence that Malami will not disobey the court order, stressing that it was given directly against his office.
The court, however, adjourned hearing of the suit to August 18.
