Sunday Igboho’s supporters protested the DSS raid on the activist’s home on Wednesday.
Supporters of wanted Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, have come to the streets of Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, to protest the Department of State Services’ midnight raid on the activist’s home last Thursday.
Protesters gathered in front of Igboho’s house in Ibadan’s Sooka neighborhood around 12 p.m. on Wednesday and took to the streets.
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.
“We want the Obas to make this happen within seven days,” he said.
