Thousands of supporters of Sunday Igboho have taken to the streets of Ibadan to protest the raid on his residence by the DSS.

CityNews Nigeria reports that supporters of wanted Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho have taken to the streets of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, to protest last Thursday’s midnight raid by the Department of State Services (DSS) on the residence of the Yoruba nation activist.

The protesters gathered in front of Igboho’s house in the Sooka residence of Ibadan from where they took to the streets around 12 noon on Wednesday, this online platform learnt.

They were heard chanting “No retreat, no surrender!” “Oodua Nation!” “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal!” amongst other phrases.

A leader of the protesting youths, 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 proceed to the Government House, amongst other places.

“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”

The DSS raid had been condemned by many Nigerians including human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, who described it as a “nocturnal coup”, arguing that no law in Nigeria allows security agents to arrest anyone in the dead of the night.

 

Also, CityNews recalls that Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, had condemned the invasion which he described as “bizarre”.

Similarly, Southern governors, on Monday, resolved that security agencies must notify them as the chief security officer of their states before they carry out any operation within their domain.
