DSS Sued by Sunday Igboho Over Attack on his House
Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), the legal counsel for Yoruba activist Chief Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has sued the Department of State Service(DSS), claiming N500m damages for attacking and wrecking his home. He also alleges that the DSS agents went with the goal to kill him rather than arrest him.
This came on the same day that the Lagos Police Command announced that 49 people were arrested during the botched Oodua Republic Mega rally at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park in Ojota, Lagos, including a suspected leader of the Ogboni confraternity and a female Osun worshipper simply identified as Yeye.
According to the police, he suspects were found with dangerous weapons such as guns, ammo, axes, cutlasses, and charms.
However, the rally’s organizers, Ilana Omo Oodua, IOO, demanded the arrestees’ unconditional release, claiming that none of the demonstrators were armed.
In a statement by Sunday Igboho’s lawyer, Chief Alliyu, he called the invasion illegal and unconstitutional, and said the accusations levied against his client were baseless.
He further requested that the Federal Government investigate the invasion, sanction the DSS operatives, release all those detained, and pay N500 million to Igboho as compensation for the damage to his exotic cars, which included a Mercedes Benz G-Class and a 2019 Lexus car, among others.
“We are counsel to Chief Sunday Adeyemo (otherwise known as Sunday Igboho Oosa) and we have his standing instructions to defend and act as his counsel in all situations we deem appropriate, especially where his fundamental rights as a Nigerian citizen are violated or threatened, as we did on Thursday, 1 July 2021,” the statement read.
“Every Nigerian, if not the entire world, is aware that our client has always preached peace and advised his followers never to resort to violence in his open crusade for the establishment of the Oodua Republic, claiming that it is God and alale’ who will fight for the Yoruba Nation.
