Yoruba secessionist leader, Sunday Igboho has suspended the Yoruba Nation rally which was scheduled to hold in Lagos on Saturday as his wife, children and maids have been released in Ekiti.
His family members were allegedly kidnapped during the bloody attack at his residence in Oyo State earlier today.
THEPUNCH is reporting that Operatives of the Department of State Services carried out the midnight attack at the home of Mr. Igboho.
A top security source, who pleaded anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak on the matter, told The PUNCH on Thursday that the secret police operated in Sunday Igboho’s residence in Ibadan on Thursday morning.
“The DSS operated in his (Sunday Igboho) house in Ibadan on Thursday morning,” the security source confided in our correspondent.
The source, however, could not give details on whether Igboho was arrested or whether any of his aides were arrested or killed during the raid.
Efforts to speak with DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunaya, the newspaper said, proved abortive as of the time of filing this report.
