The State Security Service on Wednesday told the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court that armed robbers have carted away the case file of Sunday Igboho’s Aides who have been in custody since the brutal invasion of their residence in Ibadan weeks ago. 

A lawyer representing the SSS told Justice Obiora Egwuatu that the incident came when armed robbers operating a one-chance cartel stole attacked an official in charge of the documents. 

He did not immediately say whether the incident occurred in Abuja or other parts of the country. 

The lawyer said the matter should be adjourned, but the court has yet to accede to the request as of the time of filing this report.

Katsina State Governor Aminu Masari has said with the benefit of hindsight, his government should never have negotiated with bandits, let alone grant them amnesty. Although Masari said he never regretted his decision at the time, he admitted that information available to him confirmed that engaging the bandits was not the right thing to do.

Consequently, based on current understanding of the situation, the governor said he had set in motion plans to proscribe open grazing of cattle in the state. He said once certain structures were put in place for ranching, nomadic herding would be outlawed in the state.

Masari disclosed these during an interview on a national television.
