DSS behind attack on Sunday Igboho’s house –Source

Operatives of the Department of State Services carried out a midnight attack on the residence of Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, in the Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo State, The PUNCH has learnt.

A top security source, who pleaded anonymity because he wasn’t authorised to speak on the matter, told The PUNCH on Thursday that the secret police operated in Sunday Igboho’s residence in Ibadan early Thursday.

“The DSS operated in his (Sunday Igboho) house in Ibadan on Thursday morning,” the security source confided in our correspondent.

The source, however, could not give details on whether any of Igboho’s aides were arrested, killed or injured during the raid.

Efforts to speak with DSS spokesman, Peter Afunaya, proved abortive as of the time of filing this report.

However, our correspondent sent Afunaya a number of text messages seeking to know whether the secret police indeed raided the Ibadan residence of Igboho but the DSS spokesman neither deny nor confirm the report.

“Got into a meeting, will revert to you afterwards. Good afternoon,” Afunaya wrote in one of his text messages to our correspondent on Thursday.
