 NYSC sues DSS over alleged unlawful arrest, detention

 A member of the National Youth Service Corps(NYSC), Olupona Olusegun Adewale, has dragged the Director of Security Services to court over the alleged unlawful arrest and illegal detention.

Adewale, who is resident in Akure but observing his mandatory one-year NYSC national assignment at A.U.D Secondary school, Ikere, Ekiti State, was arrested on March 24, 2022, and has remained in the DSS custody till date.

In the suit filed by his Counsel, Tope Temokun, Adewale is urging the court to declare that his arrest and subsequent detention was illegal and a violation of his fundamental human right to freedom of movement.

Adewale is asking the court to order the DSS to release him from custody.

He is seeking an order or perpetual restriction against the DSS from arresting of detaining him.

His lawyer said they resorted to file the suit because the DSS prevented access to the detained Corps member and refused to release him.
