Supporters of wanted Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, have come to the streets of Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, to protest the Department of State Services’ midnight raid on the activist’s home last Thursday.
Protesters gathered in front of Igboho’s house in Ibadan’s Sooka neighborhood around 12 p.m. on Wednesday and took to the streets.
They were heard yelling, among other things, “No retreat, no surrender!” “Oodua Nation!” and “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal!” They also carried signs with identical phrases on them.
Before the protesting youngsters took off, a leader addressed the crowd, whose name was unknown at the time of reporting this story.
He stated that they would march to the palace of Oba Saliu Adetunji, the Olubadan of Ibadanland, and then to the Government House, among 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.
