…says ‘they killed two guys, destroyed all my properties’
Yoruba Nation Agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, says a combined team of heavily armed operatives of the Department of State Services and troops of the Nigerian Army raided his Ibadan, Oyo State, home in the early hours of Thursday.
Igboho’s Ibadan residence came under attack at about 1am on Thursday from gunmen alleged to be dressed in military camouflage.
Igboho, in a chat with BBC Yoruba, monitored in Lagos, stated that he was in his house when the attackers stormed the building.
The Yoruba Nation agitator told BBC in Yoruba, “I just started hearing sporadic gunshots heard inside my compound and in front of my house. The attackers were shouting ‘Sunday Igboho come out, we are DSS, we are soldiers, come out!’
“I just peeped through the window, and I saw them in DSS uniform. I also saw the soldiers and I was so shocked because I didn’t kill anyone or fight with anybody. All I’m doing is fight for my people.
“All the rally I’m doing is a peaceful rally; so I’m fighting for my family too because all the bandits kill my family, rape them, kidnap them and take ransom from them.
“But because Government refused to do the right thing, that’s why I came out to support my family to fight for our right. So I was surprised.
“Yes, I was in the house when they came. They killed about two guys. The shooting was too much. They destroyed all my properties, all my vehicles.”
