By Robert AKPAN, Senior Investigator Correspondent, Lagos/
LAGOS– CONTRARY to media reports that the invasion of the popular self-styled Yoruba agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho’s resident was by unknown gunmen, the Department of State Security DSS has come up to admit responsibility for the untoward and wanton destruction of his property and killing some of his aides. This revelation was made known by the Department’s spokesperson, Peter Afunanya in a press statement made available to CrimeWorld magazine online.
He said the Department acted in the best interest of the country adding that it had become notorious that the said Igboho was stockpiling arms and ammunition against the entire county in the guise of agitating for the overall interest of the Yoruba race. According to him, when his men arrived the Ibadan resident of the Yoruba warlord, his bodyguards opened fire on them while they responded according leading to the death of two of his guards and minor injury of one of the DSS operatives.
He said the cross fire lasted for almost one hour during which 12 persons including a woman were arrested and a cache of arms and ammunition, charms and amulets were recovered from the resident. His statement reads in full: “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. On approach to the residence, the team came under heavy gun attack by nine (9) men, suspected to be IGBOHO’s guards. Six (6) of them were armed with AK-47 gun and Three (3) others, with Pump-Action riffles.
In the course of the exchange, two (2) of IGBOHO’s armed men were gunned down while the rest were subdued and arrested. Only one operative who was shot by the assailants on his right hand sustained injury. He has however received medical attention and is very stable. Afterwards, the team procedurally searched the house and subsequently recovered the following among others: Seven (7) AK-47 assault rifles;
Three (3) Pump Action guns; Thirty (30) fully charged AK-47 magazines; Five Thousand (5,000) rounds of 7.62mm ammunition; Five (5) Cutlasses, One (1) Jack knife, One (1) Pen Knife, Two (2) Pistol holsters; One (1) binoculars , A wallet containing Five (5) US Dollars in one (1) Dollar denomination; local and international driver’s licences in his name, ATM Cards, a German residence permit No. YO2N6K1NY bearing his name; Two (2) whistles; Fifty (5) Cartridges; Eighteen (18) Walkie-Talkies;
Three Voodoo charm jackets/traditional body armour; Two (2) Laptops (One (1) Toshiba and One (1) Compaq); and his International Passport and those of many others (as displayed here). Further exploitation and forensic analysis are ongoing. Aside the items recovered from the building, about thirteen (13) suspects including twelve (12) males and one (1) female were arrested and brought to Abuja.
While one suspect is being profiled, the other twelve (12) paraded here are: Abdulateef OFEYAGBE, Amoda BABATUNDE aka Lady K (female) , Tajudeen ERINOYEN, Diakola ADEMOLA, Abideen SHITTU, Jamiu NOAH, Ayobami DONALD, Adelabe USMAN, Oluwafelumi KUNLE, Raji KAZEEM, Taiwo OPEYEMI and Bamidele SUNDAY. Highlights of this brief are 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.
Alert foreign missions and licencing 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. Apprise stakeholders that the Five (5) AK-47 assault rifles recovered from the building are suspected to be those collected by IGBOHO’s men from Nigerian Customs and Immigration personnel at Idi Iroko, Ogun State. The gun duel which lasted for an hour offered IGBOHO the chance to escape.
Sunday ADEYEMO a.k.a Sunday IGBOHO is now on the run. IGBOHO may run as far as he can. He may hide as long as he wants. He might have attacked security operatives as his strength carried him. But this will be the end of his shenanigans. Soon, he will not have a hiding place. His strength will sure fail him.
And the law will catch up with him. The law may be slow. But it will be steady. Consequently, ADEYEMO/IGBOHO is advised to turn himself in to the nearest security agency. Those cheering and eulogising him may appeal to or advise him to do the needful. He should surrender himself to the appropriate authorities. He or anyone can never be above the law. Meanwhile, those arrested will be charged accordingly.”
But a viral video obtained by us showed a heavy bombarded of Igboho’s resident, all the posh cars includ G wagons were bullet riddled. Blood freely flowed on the floor, every nook and crannies of the building was reduced to rubbles with nearly all the rooms and ceilings were blown open by bullets. The action of the DSS came 72 hours to the planned peaceful rally in Lagos against the spate of insecurity in the country and barefaced injustices unleashed on sections of the country.
