Sunday Igboho suspends Yoruba nation rally
Self acclaimed activist Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho has suspended the Yoruba nation rally planned to hold in Lagos on Saturday.
This development is coming after Igboho’s house was attacked by gunmen killing two people and abducting his wife.
The Yoruba Nation group, Ilana Omo Oodua issued a statement earlier signed by its leader, Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye declaring that the Yoruba Nation rally slated for Lagos will hold on Saturday as scheduled.
Meanwhile, Sunday Igboho in an interview with BBC news pidgin on Thursday confirmed being in the house as at the time of the attack.
He said “I just heard plenty bullets in my compound and gunshot in front of my house. They were shouting Sunday Igboho come out, we are DSS, we are soldiers, come out!
“So I peeped through the window, and I saw them DSS uniform, and soldiers, so I was surprised because I didn’t kill anyone nor fight with anybody, what I’m doing is to fight for me people.
“All the rally I’m doing is a peaceful rally, so I’m fighting for my family too because all the bandits killed my family, raped them kidnapped them and take ransom from them.
“Government refused to do the right thing, that’s why I came out to support my family to fight for our right. So I was surprised.
“Yes, I was in the house when they came. They killed about two guys. The shooting was too much. They destroyed all my properties, all my vehicles.” he said.
