IBADAN – Contrary to an earlier report that unknown gunmen attacked Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, some of his allies have alleged that it was men of the Department of Security Services (DSS) and Nigerian Soldiers that carried out the attack.
When getting to his residence, his boys said these security men bombarded the Igboho’s Soka residence, Ibadan, Oyo state in early hour of 1:30am attacking all people in the house with guns till around 5:00am, where five people were allegedly killed, went away with their bodies, vandalized the new building while some people were whisked away alive.
They alleged further that these security men destroyed Igboho’s fleet of cars and entire building beyond repair.
One of the aides said, “They came around 1:30am and started shooting. They scaled the fence and started shooting at everybody and everything they saw.
“Chief was around but the way he escaped surprised everybody. An insider must have given them information about the house and its occupants.
“They were asking for each person by name and they killed five and took away their corpses. They also whisked a lady away and wives of Igboho’s aides who live in the house.
Those who came are soldiers and DSS operatives. They even killed some small cats and ‘arrested’ other bigger cats believing Igboho might have turned to a cat.”
His aides later stopped everybody from going inside the house including journalists.
There was blood stain on the floor of the premises as well as some of the room which was an evidence that some persons were hit by bullets.
There were also expended bullets at the front of the house and also on the premises.
Some vehicles were destroyed by bullets including a Sienna bus branded in photos of Prof.Banji Akintoye and Igboho himself.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Oyo State Command, Adewale Osifeso, when contacted said he heard that the house was attacked but he is yet to be briefed
