Unknown gunmen have reportedly attacked the Ibadan residence of Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho in the early hours of Monday.
Igboho’s media aide, Olayomi Koiki, made this known on April 26, while accusing Nigeria’s security forces of carrying out the attack.
There were reported sporadic shootings around Soka, the Ibadan residence of Igboho, as some heavily armed gunmen stormed the area.
In a viral video shared on Facebook, Koiki claimed that the residence was besieged by men of the Nigeria Army with the aim of arresting the activist.
Koiki said, “There is a situation right now where the Federal Government of Nigeria tried to invade our residence. We are telling the world that the war that the Federal Government is waiting for might start today.
“The war that the Federal Government think they are expecting from the Yoruba people; let’s tell the whole world. As I speak to you, there is an ongoing incident but we are more than capable.
“We cannot be caught unguarded. You cannot threaten us. Chief Sunday Igboho is fine.”
The Police PRO in Oyo State, Adewale Osifeso, could not be reached as of the time of filing this report.
