Supporters of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, earlier today, took to the streets of Ibadan to protest the recent raid of the activist’s house by officers of the Department of State Services and the Nigerian Army.

The protesters converged in front of Igboho’s house at Sooka area of Ibadan from where they moved to other parts of the city at about 12 noon on Wednesday.

They were heard chanting “No retreat, no surrender!”, “Oodua Nation!”, “Sunday Igboho is not a criminal!” amongst other phrases. They also carried placards displaying similar phrases.

A leader of the protesting youths, whose name was unknown as of the time of filing this report, addressed the gathering before they took off.

He said they would march to the palace of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji; and from there proceed to the Government House, amongst other places.

“It is a peaceful demonstration; we are marching there to demand the release of the detained persons. We are not afraid of teargas, we are marching to demand the rights of our people.

“We want them to bring the killers of Adogan and Alfa to book.

“The government must pay the N500m damages as requested by Igboho’s lawyer for the destruction of his house and property during the invasion.

“We want the Obas to make this happen within seven days,” he said.
