The Department of State Services (DSS) has reacted to reports that its operatives attempted to arrest Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State.
KanyiDaily had reported how Igboho was on Friday ambushed by a joint team of security operatives including the DSS, while on his way to Lagos to visit Chief Ayo Adebanjo, a Yoruba leader and an elder stateman.
In a video circulating on the social media, Igboho, who is topless, is seen with his men daring the security operatives to “do their worst” before they drove off.

However, in the statement by Peter Afunanya, Public Relations Officer, DSS denied that they made a grab for Igboho, describing the reports as “misinforming” and “fake”.
“The said news is misinforming and should be taken as fake and, therefore, be disregarded,” the statement reads.
KanyiDaily recalls that Igboho had in January given Fulani herdsmen in Ibarapa area of Oyo State seven days ultimatum to vacate the area, blaming the leadership of the Fulani for being behind the rising insecurity in the state.
The Yoruba activist also visited Ogun State after soldiers allegedly escorted herdsmen to graze in some villages in the Yewa North Local Government Area of the state and brutalised some residents in defence of the herders.
