A wife of Yoruba activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho has been abducted by armed gunmen who attacked his Ibadan home on Thursday.
This was announced by the leader of the Umbrella Body of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye, while reacting to the invasion of the Ibadan, Oyo State Residence of Yoruba Nation Agitator, Chief Sunday Igboho at the early hours of today.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, Akintoye, a Renowned Historian, alleged that the attack was carried out by the elements of the Nigerian Army who were accompanied by International Terrorists hired by the Nigerian State.
He also alleged that the Assailants were all dressed in Military Uniform and spoke French language fluently.
He further said that the Gunmen killed seven occupants in the building and whisked Igboho’s Wife and several others away.
“This is an emergency response to an emergency matter by Ilana Omo Oodua. Around 1am today Thursday 1st July, 2021, the Ibadan, Oyo State Residence of one of the leading men in our struggle for Self-Determination in Yoruba Land, Chief Sunday Adeyemo fondly called Sunday Igboho was unfortunately attacked by Gun men.”
“I want to say to the whole world that the attack was carried out by the elements of the Nigerian Army who were accompanied by International Terrorists hired by the Nigerian State.”
