DSS breaks silence on attempt to arrest Sunday Igboho

The Department of State Services, DSS, has broken the silence on purported attempt to arrest Yoruba activist, Sunday Ighoho on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The DSS, in a statement said it never attempted to arrest Igboho at any time, saying the report was fake.

A statement issued by Peter Afunanya, Public Relations Officer, Department of State Services refuted the claim and called on the public to disregard the report and take it as misinformation.

“The Department of State Services 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 taken as fake and therefore be disregarded,” DSS said.

Reports on Friday said violent attempt by a joint team of soldiers, DSS and policemen to arrest Igboho was foiled.

Igboho was said to be on his way to see Afenifere chieftain, Pa Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos when the joint team, numbering about 40 ambushed him and wanted to arrest him on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

His supporters reportedly resisted his arrest as commotion ensued between his supporters and the joint team which sought to arrest him by force.
