Sunday Igboho’s lawyer, Chief Yomi Aliyu, has written to the Nigerian government, demanding N500m for damages after his client’s house in Ibadan was raided by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).
TOS News reported that members of the DSS stormed the residence of the Yoruba activist on Thursday, killed two among his aides and whisked others away.
In a letter titled, “Illegal gang grossly unconstitutional invasion of Sunday Igboho’s residence,’’ signed by Yomi Alliyu (SAN) on Saturday, the activist demanded N500m as reparation for damage done by the DSS’ officers.
Chief Aliyu said the N500m will be used to replace Igboho’s exotic cars which included Mercedes Benz G-Class and 2019 Lexus car.
“We hereby demand that the Federal Government orders an investigation into the actions of the various security operatives led by DSS that raided Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s house with a view to sanctioning them and release all the innocent people arrested and compensate the families of those murdered. Our client should also be paid N500m as reparation for damage to his exotic cars that include Mercedes Benz G-Class and 2019 Lexus Car. We also demand a public apology,” he said in the letter.
“No demand to enter was made but rather they shot their way into the house, allegedly killing seven people, though DSS spokesman admitted killing two people which involved an old Imam that used to lead Muslim occupants in prayers and observing Tahjud at the time of the barbaric raid. A lady among the invaders was allegedly shouting, “If you get him, gun him down,” he added.
