The Department of State Services (DSS) has declared Sunday Adeyemo, a self-acclaimed Yoruba activist popularly called Sunday Igboho, wanted, confirming that two of his allies were gunned down during an operation at his Ibadan residence.

Igboho had raised an alarm that two persons were killed when security operatives raided his residence in the wee hours of Thursday.

There have been speculations over the incident as some persons expressed doubts.

But at a press briefing in Abuja on Thursday night, the secret police confirmed that it raided Igboho’s residence.

Spokesman of the service, Peter Afunanya, who addressed the media, also paraded no fewer than 12 suspects arrested during the operation.

Afunanya said the raid was based on intelligence that Igboho was stockpiling arms to cause unrest.

He said when the security operatives approached the house, they were attacked by six Igboho boys who engaged them in a gun battle.

Two of Igboho’s men were killed while an operative sustained injury, Afunanya said.

He said Igboho escaped during the gun battle.

Afunanya said that Igboho is on the run but the law would catch up with him. He urged Igboho to turn himself in to security agencies.
