Ifeanyi Ubah sues DSS, demands his immediate release

Must read

The Chairman of Capital Oil and Gas Limited, Ifeanyi Ubah, on Tuesday dragged the Department of State Services, DSS, before a Lagos Federal High Court over what he described as unlawful detention.

Counsel to the oil magnate, Mrs Ifeaoma Esom, in a motion before Justice Mohammed Idris, claimed that the secret police had held her client in custody since May 6.

Esom urged the judge to order the DSS to release Ubah and prevent the secret police from coercing him to accede to “whatever conditions they impose on him in exchange for his freedom.”

Against this backdrop, the trial judge ordered the DSS to bring Ubah before him on May 12, 2017, to show cause why the businessman should not be released unconditionally.

Recall that the oil magnate was over the weekend arrested by the DSS over allegations of oil theft worth billions naira.
