The Nation has reported that armed thugs have attacked the Soka residence of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho in Ibadan.
Some supporters of the incarcerated Yoruba Nation agitator were reportedly attacked and injured during the face-off.
The thugs, The Nation learnt, raided his house on Saturday around 3pm. One of Igboho’s aides, Onaolapo Ademola Omiyale, confirmed the incident in a live Facebook broadcast.
He claimed that Igboho’s supporters were targets of the attack.
Omiyale said: “Soka Junction, Sanyo, Academy, Oremeji are currently under attack, they are attacking anyone wearing Yoruba Nation Vest and Igboho’s face caps.”
The Nation has not been able to independently verify his claims yet.
But sources in the area, who spoke with our correspondent, said there was pandemonium in the Soka community in the afternoon following sporadic gunshots.
In the videos seen by The Nation, some of Igboho’s supporters who reportedly confronted the armed thugs, sustained injuries.
The police spokesperson in Oyo State, Adewale Osifeso was yet to speak on the incident as at the time of filing this report. Recall that Igboho is being detained in a prison facility in the Republic of Benin after he was arrested at Cardinal Bernardin International Airport, Cotonou, while on his way to Germany in July, 2021
