One feared killed, many injured as thugs attack Igboho’s residence in Ibadan

One person was feared killed and many confirmed injured on Saturday as armed thugs invaded the Soka residence of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, in Ibadan, Oyo State.

NEWSCASTARS.COM learnt that Igboho’s lead lawyer, Yomi Aliyyu (SAN), confirmed the attack in a telephone chat with The PUNCH on Saturday.

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.

This is the same house of the agitator that the Department of State Services attacked on July 1, 2021 in a Gestapo style around 2am on July 1, 2021.

The secret police killed two of the agitator’s associates and arrested 12 others who were released months later.

Igboho was declared wanted by the secret police for allegedly stockpiling arms to destabilise Nigeria, an allegation he denied and he escaped to the neighbouring francophone country in July 2021.

However, he was arrested by Interpol at a Benin airport when he tried to board a Germany-bound flight and has since been remanded in a prison in Benin Republic for over six months where he is said to be facing trial for immigration-related offences, amongst others.
