BREAKING: Nigerian DSS Declare ‘Sunday Igboho’ Wanted

The Department State Services (DSS) has declared popular Yoruba Nation Agitator and activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo also known as ‘Sunday Igboho’ wanted for illegal accumulation/possession of firearms. ayokinews.com reports

It should be recalled that on Thursday 1st July, 2021, the DSS claimed responsibility of the early morning attack on Sunday Igboho’s Ibadan residence which led to the death of an aide to the Pan Yoruba activist.

Confirming the report, the Department of State Services (DSS) revealed that 11 men and a woman were arrested after the fierce shootout between Igboho’s guards and the DSS operatives.

“On approach to the residence, the team came under heavy gun attack by nine (9) men, suspected to be Igboho’s guards. Six (6) of them were armed with AK-47 gun and three (3) others, with Pump-Action riffles.

This was made known in a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, while addressing a press briefing on the activist’s house raid.

“In the course of the exchange, two (2) of Igboho’s armed men were gunned down while the rest were subdued and arrested. Only one operative who was shot by the assailants on his right hand sustained injury. He has, however, received medical attention and is very stable.

“Afterwards, the team procedurally searched the house and subsequently recovered the following among others AK-47 rifles — and thousands of live ammunition from Igboho’s house.

“This is to inform Nigerians and the world that Sunday Igboho and his group, in the guise of campaign for self-determination, have become well-armed and determined to undermine public order. This, the arrests and seizures are, no doubt, a confirmation of a grand plan by IGBOHO and his cohorts to wage a violent insurrection against the Nigerian State.

“Alert foreign missions and licencing authorities within and outside Nigeria about this development and the possibility that IGBOHO could declare some of his personal permit and identity cards missing in order to seek their replacement.

“Apprise stakeholders that the Five (5) AK-47 assault rifles recovered from the building are suspected to be those collected by IGBOHO’s men from Nigerian Customs and Immigration personnel at Idi Iroko, Ogun state.

“The gun duel which lasted for an hour offered IGBOHO the chance to escape. Sunday ADEYEMO a.k.a Sunday IGBOHO is now on the run. IGBOHO may run as far as he can. He may hide as long as he wants. He might have attacked security operatives as his strength carried him. But this will be the end of his shenanigans. Soon, he will not have a hiding place. His strength will sure fail him. And the law will catch up with him. The law may be slow. But it will be steady.

“Consequently, ADEYEMO/IGBOHO is advised to turn himself in to the nearest security agency. Those cheering and eulogising him may appeal to or advise him to do the needful. He should surrender himself to the appropriate authorities. He or anyone can never be above the law.

“Meanwhile, those arrested will be charged accordingly.”
