PHOTOS: Igboho’s supporters stage protest in Ibadan over DSS raid

Scores of people have staged a protest in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, over the raid by the Department of State Services (DSS) on the home of Sunday Adeyemo, a Yoruba youth leader better known as Sunday Igboho.


Igboho’s Ibadan home was raided on July 1, with two occupants killed. Although he escaped arrest by the DSS operatives, 13 persons found in his house were whisked away after the raid and later paraded in Abuja.

 

The protesters on Wednesday marched to Igboho’s house and subsequently walked through major roads in Ibadan before visiting the palace of Oba Saliu Adetunji, the Olubadan of Ibadan land.

 

Dressed in black outfits, the protesters blocked the Lagos-Ibadan expressway briefly before moving on to Challenge, Molete, and other areas of the city.

 

The protesters included family members of those arrested and paraded by the DSS.

 

They condemned the raid on Igboho’s house, describing it as “illegal, sad, barbaric and a return to authoritarian rule”, while demanding for the release of those who were arrested.

 

One of the protesters who spoke said: “What the DSS did was wrong. Why not invite Igboho if you think he has committed a crime?”

 

Here are photos from the protest.
