Department of State Services (DSS) has declared Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, have been declared wanted.
This came after some of his men were arrested during a raid on his residence at Soka in Ibadan Oyo State on Thursday, July 1st in an attempt to arrest him.Two people were killed and other abducted during the raid as the secret police vows to track down and arrest Igboho.
The spokesperson for the service, Peter Afunnaya, who addressed journalists on Thursday night in Abuja said the service got intelligence that Ighoho had arms in his house.
Afunaya said, “Highlights of this brief are to inform Nigerians and the world that Sunday Igboho and his group, in the guise of a campaign for self-determination, have become well-armed and determined to undermine public order.
“The arrest and seizures are no doubt confirmation of a grand plan by Igboho and cohorts to wage a violent insurrection against the Nigerian state.
“Alert foreign missions and licensing 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.
“Consequently Adeyemo/Igboho is advised to turn himself in to the nearest security agency.”
SSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, at a press briefing confirmed that the officials were present at the activist’s house and alleged that illegal arms including seven AK-47 rifles and thousands of ammunition were recovered from the building.
