Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has demanded N500 million compensation for damage to his residence, cars and other property by Department of State Services.
This was contained in a letter sent to the Federal Government through Igboho’s counsel Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN) which sought a public apology for what he called violation of his fundamental rights during the invasion of his Ibadan residence on Thursday by the DSS.
Igboho asked the federal government to probe the action of the security officials that conducted the raid.
Counsel to the leader of the Yoruba Nation, Alliyu alleged that those arrested in Igboho’s house were being tortured to incriminate him that guns and ammunition were recovered from his house.
He pleaded with all Southwest governors 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.”
“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 said.
