Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba rights campaigner, has been kidnapped by gunmen who stormed his residence in the early hours of Thursday.
According to Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye, the leader of the umbrella organisation of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua.
Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, his Communications Manager, revealed this in a statement he personally signed and made accessible to newsmen.
‘Yoruba Nation: Elements of the Nigerian Army accompanied by International Terrorists hired by the Nigerian State assaulted Sunday Ighoho’s Residence – Akintoye,’ said the statement.
According to the Communications Manager, Akintoye alleged that “the assailants were all dressed in military uniform and spoke the French language fluently.”
He further said that “the gunmen killed seven occupants in the building and whisked Igboho’s wife and several others away.”
The incident happened 72 hours to the Yoruba Nation rally slated for Saturday in Lagos which will be attended by Akintoye and Igboho.
