DSS contests N20bn fine on Igboho
The Department of State Services has said paying the N20bn damages awarded against it by an Oyo State High Court, sitting in Ibadan, to the leader of Yoruba nation, Sunday Adeyemo (Sunday Igboho), will affect the economy.

The secret police added that the Yoruba leader was under extradition procedure to Nigeria.

These were stated in court documents made available to our correspondent in Abuja on Tuesday.

The DSS had invaded Igbohoís house in Ibadan, killing two of his aides, while 12 others were arrested.

The 49-year-old agitator, who escaped the bloody raid, was declared wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms to destabilise Nigeria.

EFCC deepens Odiliís N100bn scam probe
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has deepened the investigation of a former Governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili, over alleged fraud to the tune of N100bn even as the Nigeria Immigration Service has continued to hold on to the former governorís passport on the instruction of the EFCC.

Odili, who is the husband of the second most senior justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Mary Odili, had at the tail end of his administration in 2007 obtained a perpetual injunction barring the Federal Government and its agencies from probing, arresting or prosecuting him.

In 2020, he approached a Federal High Court again to get another injunction to stop an impending probe. In September, the former governor sued NIS for seizing his passport at the airport.

In its response, however, the NIS said it was the EFCC that asked it to seize the passport as part of a probe.
