The Department of State Services (DSS) has declared self-acclaimed activist Sunday Adeyemo, popularly called Sunday Igboho wanted.

The DSS made the declaration at a press briefing where it confirmed gunning down two of Igboho’s allies at his Ibadan residence.

Africa Daily News, New York gathered that Igboho had raised an alarm that two persons were killed when security operatives raided his residence in the wee hours of Thursday.

However, 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 disclosed this while addressing the media, also paraded no fewer than 12 suspects arrested during the operation.

He said Igboho is presently on the run but vowed that security operatives will track him.

‘In the early hours (about 01:34 hours) of today, 1st July 2021, a joint team of security operatives raided the residence of Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a SUNDAY IGBOHO at Soka Ibadan, Oyo State.

‘This was based on intelligence that he had stockpiled arms in the place. On approach to the residence, the team came under heavy gun attack by nine (9) men suspected of IGBOHO’s guards.

‘Six of them were armed with AK-47 gun and Three others, with Pump-Action rifles.

‘In the course of the exchange, two (2) of IGBOHO’s armed men were gunned down while the rest were subdued and arrested.

‘Only one operative who was shot by the assailants on his right hand sustained injury. He has, however, received medical attention and is very stable.’

The DSS spokesman added that the team procedurally searched the house and subsequently recovered some weapons.

Afunanya stressed, ‘The gun duel which lasted for an hour offered IGBOHO the chance to escape. Sunday ADEYEMO a.k.a Sunday IGBOHO is now on the run.

‘IGBOHO may run as far as he can. He may hide as long as he wants. He might have attacked security operatives as his strength carried him. But this will be the end of his shenanigans.

‘Soon, he will not have a hiding place. His strength will sure fail him. And the law will catch up with him. The law may be slow. But it will be steady.’

‘Consequently, ADEYEMO/IGBOHO is advised to turn himself into the nearest security agency. Those cheering and eulogising him may appeal to or advise him to do the needful.

‘He should surrender himself to the appropriate authorities. He or anyone can never be above the law. Meanwhile, those arrested will be charged accordingly.’
