At the court on Monday, August 2, operatives of the agency barred journalists from covering the trial.

Speaking to journalists immediately after the court session, Olajemgbese said the court has granted them leave to amend their processes.

He said; “We discovered that there are some errors in our document which we need to correct.

“DSS did not come to court with all the 12 people arrested in Igboho’s house. They came here with just eight of them. Even when we visited the DSS facility, we were only allowed to see four of them.”
