Supporters of popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo well known as Sunday Igboho stormed the street of Ibadan, Oyo state capital today, Wednesday, July 7 protesting over Thursday’s midnight raid by the Department of State Services (DSS) on his house.
The supporters who gathered in their numbers along with placards were seen in front of Igboho’s house in the Sooka area of Ibadan from where they took to the streets around 12 noon on Wednesday chanting “No retreat, no surrender!”, “Oodua Nation!”, “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal!” amongst other phrases.
According to the person who lead the protest, he said they would march to the palace of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji; and from there proceed to the Government House, amongst other places.
“It is a peaceful demonstration; we are marching there to demand the release of the detained persons. We are not afraid of teargas, we are marching to demand the rights of our people.
“We want them to bring the killers of Adogan and Alfa to book.
“The government must pay the N500m damages as requested by Igboho’s lawyer for the destruction of his house and property during the invasion.
“We want the Obas to make this happen within seven days,” he said.
