The Department of State Services has disclosed why Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho escaped from his house when operatives of the secret police stormed his residence in the Soka area of Ibadan.
The secret police noted that the Yoruba nation agitator escaped because there was a gun duel between DSS operatives and Igboho’s guards which lasted for an hour.
The spokesman of the DSS, Peter Afunaya said the security team was engaged in a gun duel by nine men suspected to be Igboho’s guards.
Afunaya stated, “A team of joint security operatives raided the residence of Sunday Adeyemo at Soka in Ibadan. This was based on intelligence that he had stockpiled arms in the place.”
“On approach to his residence, the team came under heavy gun attack by nine men suspected to be Igboho’s guards. Six were armed with AK-47 guns and three others with pump action rifles.”
“In the course of the exchange, two of the armed men were gunned down, while the rest were subdued and arrested. Only one operative, who was shot by the assailants in his right hand, sustained injury. He has, however, received medical attention and is very stable.”
“The gun duel which lasted for an hour offered Igboho the chance to escape. Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Sunday Igboho is now on the run. Igboho may run as far as he can. He may hide as long as he wants. He might have attacked security operatives as his strength carried him. But this will be the end of his shenanigans. Soon, he will not have a hiding place. His strength will sure fail him. And the law will catch up with him. The law may be slow. But it will be steady.”
