Seven days after a wanted Yoruba activist , Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho’s residence in Soka ,Ibadan ,Oyo state , his supporters have taken to the streets protesting last Thursday’s midnight raid by the Department of State Services on their master’s residence .
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that the protesters assembled in front of Igboho’s house in the Soka area of Ibadan from where they took to the streets around 12 noon on Wednesday.
Armed with placards ,they were changing “No retreat, no surrender!”, “Oodua Nation!”, “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal!” amongst others.
The Spokesperson of the protesters, whose name was unknown as of the time of filing this report, addressed the gathering before they took off.
He said they would march to the palace of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji; and from there they would proceed to the Government House, amongst other places.
He said “It is a peaceful demonstration; we are marching there to demand the release of the detained persons. We are not afraid of teargas, we are marching to demand the rights of our people.
“We want them to bring the killers of Adogan and Alfa to book.
“The government must pay the N500m damages as requested by Igboho’s lawyer for the destruction of his house and property during the invasion.
“We want the Obas to make this happen within seven days.
The DSS had invaded the residence of Igboho around 1am last week Thursday. Though Igboho had escaped the raid, his house and cars were riddled with bullets while bloodstains splattered over the floors of the house. The DSS also said it killed two of his associates in a gun duel. Thirteen of Igboho’s guards and close associates were later paraded in Abuja on Thursday evening.
