A human rights group, Yoruba Revolutionary Movement (YOREM), on has condemned the invasion by men of the Directorate of State Security (DSS), on the residence of the Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo popularlly known as Sunday Igboho on Thursday.
The National Coordinator of the group, Wale Balogun, described the invasion as an attempt to eliminate the agitator.
A statement by the National Coordinator, made available to Citizens Compass said,
“”We of the Yoruba Revolutionary Movement (YOREM) condemned the military invasion of the house and property of Chief Sunday Igboho Adeyemo; the attempt to assassinate him, the killings of at least 5 persons whose bodies were taken away, and the gestapo like arrest and kidnapping of 15 others to unknown destinations, ”
According to him, “We wish to state that the barbaric attempt to kill Sunday Igboho, the destruction of his private property is an unjust and unnecessary provocation by the Muhammadu Buhari led APC federal government of Nigeria.
“Chief Sunday Igboho Adeyemo has neither committed any offence against the Nigerian state, nor violated any law known to the Nigerian constitution, for him to be hunted like game by the Nigerian army who has failed to invade known dens of bandits visited at will by Sheik Gumi with the blessing of Buhari led APC presidency,” said Balogun.
He expressed the support of Yorubas to Igboho saying, “Yorubas supports Chief Sunday Igboho Adeyemo agitations for our people quest for a Self Governing Yoruba Nation. Our struggle for self determination and social emancipation will not and cannot be compromised by any bestial Federal Government of Nigeria attacks , intimidations, unjust arrest and killings of leading agitators for a Sovereign Yoruba nation.
“Our struggle for self determination is our people fundamental human rights recognised by the United Nations, and we shall not be cowed until we actualise a Sovereign Oodua Republic.” He added.
