BREAKING: Pandemonium as DSS, police attempt to arrest Igboho

 
There was pandemonium along the Lagos -Ibadan Expressway on Friday when a joint team of policemen and the Department of State Services attempted to arrest Yoruba activist , Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho.

According to a video obtained by The PUNCH, Igboho , who is topless, is seen with his men daring the security operatives to “ do their worst” before they drove off.

According to a statement signed by a former Minister of Aviation , Chief Femi Fani -Kayode , Igboho was on his way to meet with 93 -year – old Afenifere Chieftain, Ayo Adebanjo , when the incident occurred.

The statement read in part, “I just spoke to my brother Sunday Igboho. He told me there was a violent attempt to arrest him this afternoon by a joint team of soldiers, DSS operatives and policemen numbering about 40 on the Ibadan/Lagos Expressway whilst he was on his way to see Baba Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos.

“I condemn this attempt to ambush and abduct him . It is not only reckless but also very dangerous . If the security agencies want to see him all they need to do is to invite him to their office. I am not aware of any crime that he has committed and I urge restraint on all sides.

“Let me also send a warning to the Federal Government that Sunday Igboho is a hero to millions of Yoruba and either killing him or detaining him unlawfully would be the biggest mistake they could make . Building bridges , dialogue and the pursuit of peace is better than intimidation , threats , violence and war. A word is enough for the wise.”
