The Department of State Services (DSS) and Oyo State government sources have both denied any link to the ‘attempted’ arrest of self-styled Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.

In a short statement released on Friday evening, the Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Peter Afunanya described as misleading and piece of fake news, the attempted arrest of Sunday Igboho.

“The Department of State Services 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.”

Also, sources within Oyo State government circles also told hotjist.com that its security outfit ‘Operation Burst’ was routinely stationed at the Guru Maharaji camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and had nothing to do with the purported attempted arrest.

Former Minister for Aviation and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode had taken to social media to report an attempted arrest of Sunday Igboho.

Fani-Kayode wrote “I just spoke to my brother Sunday Igboho. He told me there was a violent attempt to arrest him this afternoon by a joint team of soldiers, DSS operatives and policemen numbering about 40 on the Ibadan/Lagos Expressway whilst he was on his way to see Baba Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos.

“I condemn this attempt to ambush and abduct him. It is not only reckless but also very dangerous.

“If the security agencies want to see him all they need to do is to invite him to their office.

“I am not aware of any crime that he has committed and I urge restraint on all sides.

“Let me also send a warning to the FG that Sunday Igboho is a hero to millions of Yorubas and either killing him or detaining him unlawfully would be the biggest mistake they could make.

“Building bridges, dialogue and the pursuit of peace is better than intimidation, threats, violence and war.

“A word is enough for the wise.”

More updates shortly.
