A close aide to the leading ' Yoruba Nation' secessionist agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho has narrated how the Thursday midnight operation was carried out by members of the Department of State Services while acknowledging the handiwork of an insider in its orderings.
According to the anonymous aide, both the members of the DSS and the Nigerian Army stormed Igboho' s residence around 1. 35 am on Thursday and shot sporadically into the air to announce their impromptu presence which claimed the lives of Igboho' s bodyguard.
A masked lady was said to have led the security operatives into the house and ordered that every living thing on sight must be gunned down. She also called out names of close Igboho' s aides in a very loud voice before a Muslim cleric suspected to be Igboho' s right- hand man was shot dead while observing his prayers.
The aide who described the invasion as a Commando operation said the security operatives went ahead to kill five other persons and went away their corpses. And said his boss escaped by whiskers after he realized that the killer agent of the state was all out for his life.
Due to the inability of these men in Nigerian Security uniforms to either apprehend Igboho or kill him, they abducted his wives, blogger and his CCTV box to cover their atrocities. They also carted away with his 3million Naira and jewellery which was not disclosed in their last press release.
" When they arrived at about 1: 35 am on Thursday, they scaled the fence and opened fire. We just heard sporadic gunshots all around the main house during which they killed one of the bodyguards of Sunday Igboho named Adogan- a close aide to Igboho told Vanguard Newspaper
" Before the gunmen made their way into the inner rooms there was a lady wearing a mask who led them in. She was calling occupants of the house by their names. That is to show theat an insider gave them the information they relied on,
" The lady started shouting the names of close aides of Igboho and asked the assailants to kill every living thing sighted on the premises. They killed his Alfa who was praying. They took away about N3m from his (Igboho' s) room as well as his jewellery. The assailants killed five persons and took away their corpses, he added
" Some ladies, who are wives of Igboho' s aides, were also taken away. They took away the CCTV box so that we would not be able to playback. " When they realised that Igboho had escaped, out of anger, they whisked away one of his wives and 13 other aides including one of his bloggers named Lady K. When Sunday Igboho found out they were there to kill him, he had to enter another room and disappeared. We can' t tell his whereabouts as I am speaking with you. The gun duel lasted an hour.
