Nigeria’s Secret Police Declares Yoruba Separatist Sunday Igboho Wanted, Says He Plans Insurrection
Nigeria’s Department of State Services (DSS) has declared Yoruba secession agitator Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, wanted.
The state security service accused Igboho of hatching a grand plan to wage a violent insurrection against the Nigerian state in the guise of campaign for self-determination.
The DSS also confirmed Thursday’s morning raid on the Ibadan residence of the Yoruba rights activist noting that some of Igboho’s guards were arrested and two killed after a gun duel.
Spokesman of the Nigerian secret police, Peter Afunanya, at a press briefing in Abuja on Thursday, said the DSS carried out the raid after intelligence reports revealed that Igboho stockpiled weapons in his house.
Mr Afunanya said the highlights of the brief was 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.”
Giving further details of the raid, the DSS spokesman said: “In the early hours (about 0134 hours) of today, 1st July, 2021, a joint team of security operatives raided the residence of Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo a.k.a. SUNDAY IGBOHO at Soka, Ibadan, Oyo State. This was based on intelligence that he had stockpiled arms in the place.
