.The money is for damages done to his house during the invasion.
Justice Ladiran Akintola of Oyo State High Court gave the order on Friday.

The court declared the raid illegal and criticized the DSS for “arbitrary aggression and prejudices”.
“The court also declared the invasion illegal and tongue-lashed the DSS for acting based on what he described as “arbitrary aggression and prejudices” from his agitation for the Yoruba nation,” according to The Nation newspaper.
