Nigerian Army respond to the attack on Sunday Igboho’s residence

Nigerian Army respond to the attack on Sunday Igboho’s residence that claims the Nigerian army was responsible for the attack because the gunmen were dressed in Army uniform.

THE Nigerian Army finally responded to an attack on the residence of Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, by gunmen dressed in military uniform.

According to reports, not less than seven people were killed at the residence of the self-acclaimed Yoruba nation agitator located in the Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo State. The attack happened in the early hours of the morning on Thursday, the 1st of July, 2021.

Although an independent verification is yet to be made, it was also reported that properties worth millions of naira were destroyed by the culprits who attacked the resident. In addition, Igboho’s wife and several others were also said to have been abducted during the course of the attack.

The leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), Banji Akintoye, who announced the development in a statement made available to newsmen by his Communications Manager Maxwell Adeleye, blamed the attack on the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to Akintoye, he alleged that the attack was carried out by members of the Nigerian Army who were accompanied by international terrorists hired by the Nigerian government to raid his household.

Furthermore, while revealing that the assailants spoke French Language fluently, Akintoye stressed that the attack on Igboho’s residence was highly unnecessary.

In reaction to Akintoye’s statement, the spokesman of the Nigerian Army Onyema Nwachukwu said he was not aware that Nigerian soldiers were responsible for the attack.

Hence, the fact that the gunmen were dressed in military attire does not imply they were sent by the Nigerian military.

“There’s nothing like that; I don’t have that information. Soldiers did not carry out an attack on Igboho,” the army spokesman told the Peoples Gazette in a telephone interview.
