Yoruba freedom fighter and activist, Sunday Igboho Adeyemo, has escaped an attack by armed gunmen at his Soka residence, Ibadan, in Oyo state.

The attack was made known by Igboho’s spokespersons, Koiki Olayomi and Dapo Salami.

His aides revealed that the attackers stormed the house around 1:30 am and attempted to set it ablaze but they were resisted by the vigilant security aides of Igboho.

It was gathered that the gunmen and the guards of the activists exchanged gunfire.

Koiki warned that if the security agents did not leave his boss alone, it might be the beginning of the problem that the government was waiting for.

He said, “The gunmen came exactly 1.30 am. They attempted to enter the house but they were resisted. I cannot confirm the number of those who came. But, they came and they were resisted.

“We are not suspecting anyone, but we know that some people came. They came and they were resisted, that is just it.”

Salami who spoke with Vanguard in a telephone conversation said, “Yes, the hoodlums came to the Soka residence of Chief Sunday Igboho at 1:30 am but there was stiff resistance by our men.”

When asked if the attackers were able to get Chief Igboho, he said “no” adding that Chief Igboho was safe.

I have not seen him this morning. But, the attackers couldn’t get to him. He is in a safe place now.”

Speaking on the development, a resident “wondered why this present government was trying to curry problem for itself noting that why should the government be trailing someone who is just protecting his people when the government has failed to do so.

“There are criminals out there who have been bold enough to own up to attacks on some people, this same government is not after them. It appears the government wants to cause problem in the country”.
