Sunday Igboho Demands N500m Damages, Apology From FG


The Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho on Saturday wrote a petition to the federal government protesting damage to his residence, cars and other property by the personnel of Department of State Services.

He estimated his losses at N500million and demanded same as reparation.

Igboho, in a letter through his counsel Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN) also sought a public apology for what he called violation of his fundamental rights during the invasion of his house and the institution of a probe of the action of the security officials that conducted the raid.

Few days ago the operatives DSS stormed the Ibadan residence of Igboho, killing at least two of his aides and abducting his wife and many others.

He equally implored all the Governors of Southwest States that “know the yearnings of their people and Igboho’s large followership to wade in before it becomes hydra headed security problems in all their domains.”

Counsel alleged that those arrested in Igboho’s house were being tortured to incriminate him that guns and ammunition were recovered from his house.

He said: “Sunday Igboho knew that he would be arrested one day hence retaining our services. He could not be that daft to keep incriminating articles in his house!

“Our client’s house is a 5 bedroom duplex with 5 chalets of 2 and 3 bedrooms. These were totally damaged with operatives allegedly arguing on whether to burn down the edifice as done to his former palatial house. The lady officer allegedly put her foot down against arson.”

He added, “We hereby demand that the Federal Government orders an investigation into the actions of the various security operatives led by DSS that raided Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s house with a view to sanctioning them and release all the innocent people arrested and compensate the families of those murdered. Our client should also be paid N500m as reparation for damage to his exotic cars that include Mercedes Benz G-Class and 2019 Lexus Car. We also demand a public apology.

“No demand to enter was made but rather they shot their way into the house, allegedly killing seven people, though DSS spokesman admitted killing two people which involved an old Imam that used to lead Muslim occupants in prayers and observing Tahjud at the time of the barbaric raid. A lady among the invaders was allegedly shouting, “If you get him, gun him down.”

The attack on Igboho’s residence did not stop the Yoruba Nation rally in Lagos on Saturday as hundreds of supporters of activists stormed the state despite the presence of heavily armed security personnel.
