DSS Denies Attempting To Arrest To Sunday Igboho

Department of State Services (DSS) has denied reports that it attempted to arrest Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, in Oyo State on Friday afternoon, February 26.

Public Relations Officer of DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, debunked the report in a statement released this evening.

 

It reads;

The Department of State Services wishes to refute the news that it attempted to arrest one Sunday Igboho, today, at Ibadan, Oyo State. The said news is misinforming and should be taken as fake and therefore be disregarded.

Earlier today, there was an attempt to arrest the self-acclaimed Yoruba activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, along Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Friday afternoon.

According to video shared online, Igboho, who was see  topless, is seen with his men daring the security operatives to “do their worst” before they drove off.

Announcing the incident, former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, in a statement said Igboho was on his way to meet with 93-year-old Afenifere Chieftain, Ayo Adebanjo, when the incident occurred.

He condemned the attempt to ambush and abduct Igboho, saying it was a reckless and very dangerous act.

Fani-Kayode warned the Federal Government from arresting Igboho, who he claims is a hero to millions of Yorubas.

He alleged that killing him or detaining him unlawfully would be the biggest mistake the FG could make.

Fani-Kayode then urged FG to building bridges, dialogue and the pursuit of peace rather than resorting to intimidation, threats, violence and war.
