Southwest Governors Hiding Sunday Igboho From DSS – Miyetti Allah

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, one of the umbrella bodies of herdsmen in Nigeria, has alleged that South-West governors are “hiding” wanted Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
Spokesman for the group, Saleh Alhassan, stated this in an exclusive interview with The PUNCH on Monday.
But Donald Ojogo, an aide to the Chairman of South-West Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, said it is demeaning for the governors to respond to Miyetti Allah’s accusation.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the Department of State Services on July 1, 2021, raided Igboho’s Ibadan residence in Oyo State, detained 13 of his followers, and killed two of the activist’s associates in a “gun duel”.
Igboho, a spearhead of the separatist agitation for the Yoruba nation, escaped the bloody raid and was subsequently declared wanted by the secret police on allegations of stockpiling arms to destabilise the country, which he has since denied.
The whereabouts of the Yoruba nation agitator, who gained popularity in January, following his eviction notice to suspected killer herders in the Ibarapa area of Oyo State, had since been unknown.
