Sunday Igboho: Aftermath raid of his home, southern governors task security operatives to seek notifcation before raid


After the raid carried out at the Ibadan home of Sunday Adeyemo Igboho, Southern governors, on Monday, has resolved that security agencies must notify them as the chief security officer of their states before they carry out any operation within their domain.


This was contained in a communiqué issued today at the end of the governors’ meeting in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos State.

The communiqué didn’t explicitly mention the recent raid of the Department of State Services on the Ibadan residence of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, but the decision of the governors was a veiled reference to the incident.
It could be recalled that the DSS on Thursday morning around 1am invaded the residence of Igboho in a Gestapo style. Though Igboho had escaped the raid, his house and cars were riddled with bullets while bloodstains splattered over the floors of the house. The DSS also said it killed two of his associates in a gun duel. Thirteen of Igboho’s guards and close associates were later paraded in Abuja on Thursday evening.

The secret police had since declared Igboho wanted. The activist is being accused of stockpiling weapons to destabilise the country under the guise of agitation for Yoruba nation but he has since denied the allegation, saying he protects himself with charms and not weapons.

The DSS invasion has been condemned by many socio-cultural groups in the South-West including Afenifere.
