The Department of State Services (DSS) has claimed that its operatives tried to arrest Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, on Friday.
This comes a few hours after reports that a joint team of policemen and the Department of State Services attempted to arrest Sunday Igboho along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, leading to a clash between his supporters and the security men.
In a viral video on social media, Igboho, who was not putting on any top, had dared security operatives to “do their worst” before they drove off.
But the DSS issued a denial in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, National Headquarters, Abuja, Dr Peter Afunanya, titled, ‘DSS did not attempt to arrest Sunday Igboho’.
The DSS statement however did not give details of the encounter with Sunday Igboho, on the Lagos -Ibadan Expressway.
“The Department of State Services wishes to refute the news that it attempted to arrest one Sunday Igboho, today, at Ibadan, Oyo State. The said news is misinforming and should be taken as fake and therefore be disregarded,” the statement read.
Earlier, apex pan Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, had slated the security operatives for going after Igboho while marauding bandits are treated with kid gloves.
