Sunday Igboho’s lawyer writes SSS, demands N500 million damages over house raid
The lawyer of a self-styled Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has asked Nigeria’s secret police, SSS, to apologise to his client over the invasion of his home.

The lawyer, Yomi Aliyu, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), also demanded N500 million damages from the security operatives for destroying his Ibadan residence during a midnight raid on Thursday.

His vehicles, including his G-wagon, Prado Jeep, and some valuable properties including furniture, and windows were reportedly destroyed.

The attack occurred barely 72 hours before the planned rally in Lagos by Mr Igboho and others to further canvas a Yoruba nation.

The spokesperson of the SSS, Peter Afunaya, who confirmed the raid in a press conference in Abuja, said a total of seven AK 47 rifles were recovered, alongside pump action guns, 5,000 rounds of ammunition and other weapons.

He said security operatives recovered the weapons after a “hot gun duel between them and Igboho’s guards.”

The SSS also admitted that two of Igboho’s men were killed in the process while a security agent was shot on the right hand and is currently responding to treatment.

Igboho was also declared wanted by the secret police.
