One person was feared killed and many confirmed injured on Saturday when armed thugs attacked the Soka residence of Yoruba Nation champion, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Igboho’s lead lawyer, Yomi Aliyyu (SAN), confirmed the attack in a telephone chat with reporters on Saturday.
Mataz Arising also obtained footage of the injured aides of the Yoruba Nation campaigner. See below.
According to Aliyyu, the armed thugs stormed Igboho’s residence and macheted the associates of the Yoruba Nation campaigner, leaving one of his aides dead.
He said the hoodlums’ attack was at the same house where Igboho was attacked by the Department of State Services attacked on July 1, 2021.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, did not take his calls which rang out, Aliyyu informed.
The secret police had stormed Igboho’s Ibadan residence in a Gestapo style around 2am on July 1, 2021 where they killed two of the agitator’s associates and arrested 12 others who were released months later.
Declared wanted by the secret police for allegedly stockpiling arms to destabilise Nigeria, an allegation he denied, Igboho escaped to the neighbouring francophone country in July 2021 where he was arrested by Interpol at a Benin airport when he tried to board a Germany-bound flight.
He has since been remanded in a prison in Benin Republic. He is facing charges for immigration-related offences, amongst other trumped up charges.
