The Department of State Services, DSS, has refuted allegations that its personnel attempted to arrest Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, in Ibadan, Oyo state.
DSS Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, in a press statement in Abuja said:
“The DSS 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 should be disregarded,” he said.
Former Aviation Minister, Fani-Kayode said he confirmed the attack via a phone call from Igboho himself.
Igboho confirmed attack by men of DSS acting on the instruction of unknown authorities.
He said the DSS personnel attempted to prevent him from moving around Ibadan and beyond, however, he managed to make his way to point of his scheduled meeting.
In the video that went viral, he was seen with his supporters shirtless.
