Soka part of Ibadan, Oyo State was tension soaked overnight till the early hours of Monday as Sunday Igboho’s men and soldiers engaged each other in gun duel when they attempted to arrest the Yoruba activist.
In a video recorded live by Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, said, soldiers of the Nigeria Army were alleged to have put the house under siege, in attempt to arrest Igboho.
Igboho’s spokesman called on the International Community, tje Civil Society Organisations and the Yoruba people worldwide to rise to the ocassion of justice and freedom for the land.
“We are more than capable to secure ourselves, we have chased them far from here, I am sure you can hear gunshots.
“That is them shooting from afar, we cannot be intimidated because we are fully prepared and ready for them.” Koiki stated.
On who could be responsible for the alleged attack, Koiki who linked the situation to the Federal government explained that the Governor Seyi Makinde-led Oyo state government would have a hand in it.
“By tomorrow morning, I am sure the government would come with false press statements, that it was a set of unknown soldiers, that was the same tactic they used to attack Fela’s mother. They equally used it during #EndSARS.
“They brought us letter sometimes ago but we rejected it because letter was what they used to kill Dele Giwa. We have chosen to be peaceful only for them to keep looking for our trouble which we won’t hesitate to give to them.” Koiki boasted.
Nigeria Police and their counterparts from the Department of State Service (DSS) in February was alleged to have teamed up and reportedly tried to arrest Igboho on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
