One of the aides of Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has alleged that the Department of State Services (DSS) took away N3 million and a closed-circuit television box during Thursday’s raid on his house in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Igboho’s house was left in shambles with stains of blood as a result of the raid while some cars were damaged.
The aide also alleged that a victim, who he identified simply as Alfa, was praying inside the building when he was shot in the head and died on the spot.
He said: “Chief surprised every one of us because the attackers were everywhere, but he escaped. The assailants came around 1.30am, scaled the fence and opened fire.
“I think the instruction they were given was to kill every living thing sighted on the premises. A lady was the one directing them. She was calling occupants of the house by their names. That is to show that an insider gave them the information they relied on.
“They took away about N3million from his (Igboho’s) room as well as his jewellery.”
Meanwhile, the DSS paraded 13 of Sunday Igboho’s followers in Abuja on Thursday, saying one other was being profiled.
The DSS said a joint team of security operatives had raided Igboho’s residence early on Thursday based on an intelligence report.
However, the attack might not be unconnected to the Yoruba Nation rally scheduled to hold in Lagos on Saturday.
The rally has now been suspended by the activist.
