Operatives of the Nigerian military have allegedly attacked the residence of Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, in the early hours of Thursday.
SaharaReporters gathered that the soldiers unleashed mayhem on the activist’s house in the Soka area of the city as early as 1 am.
At least 10 vehicles belonging to Igboho, including his G-wagon, Prado SUVs, and valuable properties, furniture, and windows were destroyed.
Bullet holes were also found on the buildings in the compound while bloodstains were seen on the premises by our correspondent.
Speaking to SaharaReporters, an eyewitness said, “They were all soldiers, military men. They came in vans and Hummer buses. They abducted his wife and others. They killed two people.”
Ighoho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, also confirmed the incident in a Facebook Live.
He said, “The situation now is very bad. Two Yoruba sons have been killed in the house of Chief Sunday Igboho. The two dead bodies have been taken away by the military. We do not know of the location where they were taken to.
“I can confirm that those who came are definitely Nigerian soldiers. There are more than 100 soldiers that came.”
The incident happened 72 hours to the Yoruba Nation rally slated for Saturday in Lagos.
