The Department of State Services (DSS) has declared Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, wanted.
This was disclosed by the spokesperson for the Service, Peter Afunnaya, while addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday, July 1, 2021.
Recall that TheNewsBeam reported that The house of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho located in the Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo State was raided in the early hours of Thursday, July 1, 2021.
However, according to Afunnaya, he confirmed that the agency was responsible for the raid, because it got intelligence that Ighoho had stockpiled arms in his house.
“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.” He said.
Furthermore, Afunnaya revealed items recovered during the operation, which include: seven AK-47 assault rifles, 3 Pump Action Guns, 30 fully charged AK-47 magazines, 5, 000 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, 5 cutlasses, and 1 Jackknife.
