DSS raid on my residence took me by surprise – Sunday Igboho

Yoruba Nation advocate, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, commonly known as Sunday Igboho, opens up about the traumatic midnight invasion of his Ibadan home by the Department of State Services (DSS) on July 1, 2021. Speaking in an interview with The Punch, Igboho reveals his shock at the aggression, emphasizing that the Yoruba Nation’s quest was constitutional, peaceful, and legitimate.

“I was not expecting the government of former President Muhammadu Buhari to send security agents after me because our struggle for the actualization of the Yoruba nation was constitutional, peaceful, and legitimate,” Igboho asserts, condemning the illegality and executive recklessness displayed during the attack.

When questioned about his anticipation of such action from President Buhari, Igboho denies having any political influence or advanced knowledge of the raid, dismissing notions of spiritual powers. Recounting the events of that night, he describes the chaos caused by armed security forces, highlighting the indiscriminate firing of bullets and the destruction of property.

Addressing speculations about the involvement of herbalists during the raid, Igboho states that the chaotic situation left no room for him to verify such details. He acknowledges the killing of cats during the assault, attributing it to the indiscriminate firing by the security forces.

Responding to allegations by the DSS of him stockpiling guns, Igboho vehemently denies the accusations, labeling them as phantom and a ploy to implicate him in a criminal trial. He challenges the credibility of the DSS claims and insists on the peaceful nature of his agitation.

Regarding his arrest in Benin Republic, Igboho clarifies that he was neither imprisoned nor jailed but was detained before his court arraignment. He credits the intervention of prominent Nigerians, including former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Professor Wole Soyinka, and Professor Banji Akintoye, for securing his bail.

On the future of the Yoruba Nation movement, Igboho asserts that the agitation remains ongoing despite the emergence of a Yoruba president in the person of Bola Tinubu. He dispels criticisms about his leadership, emphasizing the collective effort of leaders like Professor Banji Akintoye in pursuing the peaceful and legitimate actualization of the Yoruba nation.

Igboho, currently residing in Germany, hints at his imminent return to Nigeria, assuring that the public will be informed. He concludes by affirming that the Ilana Omo Oodua movement is still actively engaged in the struggle, with correspondences submitted to the United Nations to keep the global body abreast of their activities.
