According to The PUNCH, Ilana Omo Oodua, the umbrella body of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, operatives of the Department of State Services shot and slaughtered an associate of Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, when they stormed the activist’s Ibadan apartment on Thursday.
Ex-Senator Banji Akintoye who is the leader of the group said that the service shot Saheed Adisa, also known as Adogan, 48 times before butchering him.
“This is the face of a true warrior. His name is Adogan. He took 48 bullets to his body and was still standing like a fearless Ikoyi Eso. When bullets failed the DSS, they had to slam a mortal on his head, butchering him to death.
“While DSS operatives were butchering Adogan, Majasola Igboho Oosa (May peace and blessings of Eedua always be with him) had made his exit to fight another day.
“It was said that Adogan’s body was so brutally decapitated by the DSS that they were ashamed to leave his body behind. They whisked his body away, but his blood literally trailed them from Chief Igboho’s living room to the DSS headquarters in Abuja. Trust me, we will take our revenge. RIP my good brother! No going back on Yoruba nation. Lagos rally goes on, as planned, tomorrow. Ifa Dare,” the group posted on social media.
Additional reports also suggest that mourners have been flooding the country home of Adogan who died in the raid together with Alfa, Igboho’s maternal uncle. Adogan left behind three children, a wife, an aged mother and siblings.
13 others and close associates of Ighobo were picked up by the DSS on Thursday evening. Many valuable properties in the house were destroyed and the vehicles were vandalized. Footages from the residence showed blood spills over the floors of the house.
DSS have however declared Sunday Igboho wanted and accused of hoarding weapons to cause mayhem in the country under the pretence of agitation for Yoruba nation.
