According to Punch Newspapers, Pelumi Olajengbesi, counsel for the 12 aides of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, detained by the Department of State Services has lamented the “sorry situation” of his clients in the custody of the secret police.
However, the lawyer who said he was at the DSS headquarters in Abuja on Friday, stated that the DSS feeds his clients with a soup known as “engine oil”. Olajengbesi said the detained persons had diarrhoea after eating the soup with Fufu or Eba.
More so, he said they are made to sleep on the bare floor and are badly beaten before medical treatment is accorded them to heal and conceal injuries from the torture.
Furthermore, efforts to get the reaction of DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, on the lawyer’s allegation proved abortive as he neither took calls put across to his line by our correspondent nor replied to a text message sent to his phone as of the time of filing this report.
