The Department of State Services (DSS) on Friday denied the reports they had attempted to arrest Sunday Adeyemo more popularly known as Sunday Igboho in Oyo State.
Kemi Filani recalls there were attempts earlier this evening to arrest Sunday Igboho by a joint team of the Nigerian army, the police and the Directorate of State Security, DSS, but they were boldly resisted.
Sunday Igboho was said to be on his way to see Afenifere chieftain, Pa Ayo Adebanjo when the arrest attempt occurred along Lagos/Ibadan expressway.
Denying the arrest attempt, the Public Relations Officer, National Headquarters, Abuja, Dr Peter Afunanya, in a statement termed it as fake news.
“The Department of State Services wishes to refute the news that it attempted to arrest one Sunday Igboho, today, at Ibadan, Oyo State. The said news is misinforming and should be taken as fake and therefore be disregarded.”
The attempted arrest, however, is coming weeks after the Inspector General of Police declared an arrest warrant for the businessman for giving an eviction notice to killer herdsmen in Igangan area of Ibarapa local government area of Ibadan,
