The Department of State Services on Friday 23rd, February 2020 announced that, it never ordered or attempted to arrest popular pan-Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho.
In a press release from the office of the Public Relations Officer of the national security outfit, Peter Afunanya, the statement said that the DSS “wishes to refute the news that it attempted to arrest one Sunday Igboho, today, at Ibadan, Oyo State. The said news is misinforming and should taken as fake and therefore be disregarded” he expressed.
Report had earlier circulated about the violent attempt by a joint team of soldiers, Department of State Services, DSS and policemen to arrest the popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho on Friday afternoon was foiled.
Igboho was said to be on his way to see Afenifere chieftain, Pa Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos when the joint team, numbering about 40 ambushed him and wanted to arrest him on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
