I wasn't prepared for DSS home invasion — Sunday Igboho

Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has stated that he was not prepared for the invasion of his residence by the officials of the Department of State Services (DSS).

According to The PUNCH, Igboho stated this while speaking about the July  1, 2021, midnight invasion of his Ibadan residence.

He said, "I was not expecting the government of former President Muhammadu Buhari to send security agents after me because our struggle for the actualisation of the Yoruba nation was constitutional, peaceful and legitimate. 

"We were very civil with our activities, hence we never expected a responsible government to see our agitation as harmful to the peace of the country. Yoruba as an ethnic group among the ethnic nationalities in the country is an integral part of Nigeria. 

"So for the past government of Buhari to come after my life and invade my residence in Ibadan with the security agents, killing my aide, and injuring several others was the highest level of illegality and executive recklessness. 


"The whole building was riddled with bullets from the joint team of DSS and Nigeria Army personnel. My cars, most of which were brand new were also vandalised all because we were craving for the Yoruba nation."

Also while addressing his inability to get intelligence information before the July raid given his influence, he said, "I don’t have any influence. I’m a businessman and where do I get influence when I am not a politician or a public office holder, who may have influence or tentacles in the corridor of power?

"So, I couldn’t have gotten any intel before the deadly attack on my home and my people on July 1, 2021.

"I don’t understand what you mean by spiritual power because I am not a prophet or an herbalist."
