Recall that the 12 suspects were apprehended by the Department of state services (DSS) after a raid on Igboho’s residence in July.

Igboho’s aides who have been in detention for 32 days were grated bail by Justice Obiora Egwuatu following a request by their lawyer Pelumi Olajengbesi.

The suspects were granted bail on various conditions all of which must be met before they will be free from DSS custody.

Justice Egwuatu dismissed fears by the prosecution that the suspects will jump bail and flee the country just like their embattled principal did after the raid on his house in Ibadan.

Sunday Igboho is still facing charges in Benin Republic after his attempt to flee to Germany failed.

However, the Judge argued that the suspects are have the right to request for bail as provided by the Nigerian constitution.
