The Federal Government will appeal the judgment of an Oyo State High Court which awarded N20 billion in damages against the Attorney-General of the Federation and the Department of State Service.
Justice Ladiran Akintola who delivered the ruling described DSS’ action as “arbitrary aggression and prejudices” against Igboho.
Akintola said the N20 billion will serve as exemplary and aggravated damages.
But AGF, Mr Abubakar Malami (SAN), announced that the judgment will be appealed while speaking on the development in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Friday.
NAN quoted Malami as saying that “efforts are already being made to commence the process of appealing the judgment”.
