The confusion arose when the court sought to ascertain the identities of those that were produced and those that were not produced in court by the Department of State Services.

When the matter came up before Justice Obiora Egwuatu, the DSS only produced eight of the detained Igbobo’s aides in court. The produced aides consisted of seven males and one female.

Recall that earlier reports has it that Justice Egwuatu had ordered the DSS to produce all the 12 detained aides.
