DSS manhunt: Igboho trying to get new passport, flee Nigeria, says FG

Orders IG, DSS, NIA to prevent Yoruba activist from escaping
The Federal Government has said Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, is trying to acquire a new passport to flee the country.

It added that the government had placed Igboho on the stop-list in order to facilitate his arrest and directed the security agencies to apprehend him anywhere he is found.


In the security circle, a person whose name is on the stop-list is denied all constitutional rights and privileges a citizen is entitled to.

The Federal Government’s directive against Igboho was contained in a letter by the Nigeria Immigration Service dated July 9, 2021, addressed to the Director General, Department of State Services, the Inspector General of Police and the DG, National Intelligence Agency.

The activist, a spearhead of the separatist agitation for the Yoruba Nation, had been declared wanted by the Department of State Services on allegations of stockpiling arms to destabilise the country, which he has since denied, but his whereabouts remain unknown.


The whereabouts of Igboho, a lead figure in the separatist agitation for the Yoruba Nation, has been unknown since he narrowly escaped arrest during the July 1 midnight raid by the secret police, ahead of a major rally in support of the call for Yoruba Nation in Lagos.

Following the bloody raid on Igboho’s Sooka residence, the DSS arrested and detained 13 of Igboho’s associates, adding that during a “gun duel,” it had killed two of Igboho’s supporters later identified as Adogan and Alfa.


The International Criminal Court, on Tuesday, acknowledged a 27-page petition filed by Yoruba Nation agitators signed by the Leader of Ilana Omo Oodua, Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye; Igboho; and 49 Yoruba self-determination groups.

The petition was filed against the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd); the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN; former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai; and former Inspectors General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and Muhammed Adamu.


They accused the Nigerian leaders and security chiefs of genocide and crimes against humanity against the Yoruba people of Ekiti, Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ogun, Okun Land in Kogi, and Kwara states.

The NIS letter issued to facilitate Igboho’s arrest was signed on behalf of the Comptroller General of Immigration by Assistant Comptroller General of Immigration, Investigation and Compliance, A.B. Baba.

The letter titled ‘Stop-listing of person: Adeyemo Sunday Adeniyi (aka Sunday Igboho), male, Nigerian, passport number A11613637, date of birth 10/10/1972’ was copied to all zonal controllers and control posts Nationwide.

It read, “I am directed to request that you kindly place the above-named person on stop-list. Credible intelligence revealed that Adeyemo is making efforts to obtain a police extract and/or court affidavit to enable him acquire a new Nigerian passport, apparently to facilitate his escape out of the country.

“In addition, he should be arrested wherever and whenever sighted and referred to the Director-General, Department of State Services vide letter no: S.605/A/246 dated 05 July 2021.”


The NIS spokesman, Amos Okpu, however, said he was not aware of the letter. He added that he had no update on the manhunt for Igboho.

He said, “I’m not aware of the letter. Has Ighoho been declared wanted? Well, I don’t have any information on him.”

The DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, has yet to respond to inquiries on the issue as at press time.

Following the raid on Igboho’s Sooka residence on July 1, Afunaya told journalists in Abuja that the raid was carried out based on an intelligence report that Igboho had stockpiled arms in his residence.

He explained that Igboho and his group, in the guise of the campaign for self-determination,  had become well-armed and determined to undermine public order.

The agency presented seven AK-47 rifles allegedly recovered during the raid on Igboho’s house, as well as three pump-action guns, 30 fully charged AK-47 magazines, 5,000 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, five cutlasses, one jack-knife, one pen knife, two pistol holsters, a pair of binoculars, a wallet containing $5, local and international driving licences in his name, ATM cards, a German residence permit No. YO2N6K1NY bearing his name, two whistles, 50 cartridges and 18 walkie-talkies.

Others were three charm jackets/traditional body armour, two laptops, one Toshiba and one Compaq laptop, Igboho’s passport and those of his aides.


Afunaya claimed that five of the AK-47 rifles recovered from Igboho’s residence were snatched from the Nigeria Customs and Immigration personnel at Idi-Iroko, Ogun State.

One of our correspondents had reported moves by the secret police to track down Igboho’s financiers and supporters.

Reports said the intelligence agencies had geo-located Igboho’s hiding place but they could not storm the place for security reasons. However, Saturday PUNCH could not confirm this.


Again, alleged gunmen invade Ibarapa
Meanwhile, panic gripped residents of communities in Ibarapaland, Oyo State, on Friday night, as gunmen invaded Igangan, Ibarapa North Local Government Area of the state and allegedly opened fire on some persons.

Residents of the town told one of our correspondents that the gunmen, who allegedly dressed in Customs uniform, invaded the town around 7 pm, shot and killed an unspecified number of people they met at the entrance of the town before fleeing.

The eyewitnesses said they did not know the number of persons killed by the gunmen, but that one of the sources had claimed that one person was shot dead by the rampaging hoodlums.

The gunmen were said to have loaded themselves in four vehicles, two of which were a Toyota Hilux and Sienna.


Some of the sources claimed that hunters and vigilantes in the town, when they heard the gunshots, came out in hot pursuit of the hoodlums. The fleeing hoodlums were said to have escaped through Ayete.

The Secretary of Farmers Union, Mr Taiwo Adeagbo, who is popularly known as Akowe Agbe, also alleged that the attackers wore military uniforms.

Adeagbo said, “The attackers wore military uniforms. They opened fire on those they met when they entered the town. They shot for some minutes and before the hunters could get to where they were, they had fled.”

A resident of Ayete, who identified himself as Kamaru, also told Saturday PUNCH that the fleeing hoodlums met a motorcycle spare parts dealer on the road at Ayete and shot him to death.

He said, “The gunmen invaded Igangan again this evening (Friday) and killed some persons there. But we don’t know the actual number of those killed yet. They entered Ibarapa through Igangan, shot and killed some persons they met on the road. They wore Customs uniforms, so most people would not suspect they were criminals.

“They also killed somebody here in Ayete before they escaped. But our people are pursuing them and they are likely to catch up with them. I heard that they did not go straight but veered into a path but that road is not smooth.

“We later heard that they abandoned one of their vehicles and fled on foot into the forest. But we are living in fear now because we don’t know when they will strike again.”

The Coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress in Oyo State, Mr Rotimi Olumo, also said his members in Ibarapa told him that the attackers wore Customs uniforms and killed one person in Igangan, one person in Ayete and a member of the Amotekun Corps at Igboora.

He said, “I issued a release about five days ago that the government should beef up security in the area. We heard that they would attack them before Eid el Kabir or on Sallah Day. Now, they have killed one person in Igangan, they killed another one in Ayete and killed another one at Igboora.

“I am receiving a briefing from our members there from time to time. The last one they shot dead at Igboora was said to be an Amotekun officer.”

The Commandant of the Amotekun in Oyo State, Col. Olayinka Olayanju (retd), could not be reached to comment on the attack. Repeated calls to his number indicated that it was engaged.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Adewale Osifeso, when contacted, told one of our correspondents that he would confirm it and return the call. But he had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.

Recall that suspected herdsmen had in June invaded Igangan where they set vehicles and houses ablaze, including the palace of the Asigangan of Igangan.

If Igboho wanted to leave through Nigeria's porous borders through which Buhari's family in Niger Republic, Mali and Chad have been pouring daily into the country unchecked, he would since have. If he is still in Nigeria, it is because he wants to be in the country....
Government should stop the useless propaganda.... Igboho is a HERO whose name will remain with us for a thousand years.

Sunday Igbo whatever..... the self proclaimed PDP loser on the run.
Everyone being paid and sponsored by all these pained corrupt looting politicians to cause violence and deaths in this nation will never end well in this nation.
Brutal deaths awaits them all for all the innocent lives being lost by their act.

NB : If you want your mother to cry on your corpse just like our relative Miracle Nwobodo's mother and the mothers of the 10 innocent girls that Cownu commanded to be murdered and butchered mothers cried and are still crying till today,
Quote this quote to type rubbish.
And surely, your mothers will cry on your evil and wicked corpse in few days to come.
Supporters of evil, wickedness and deaths everywhere.
Animalistic swines)


omenka:
Ipobs are schizophrenic oafs honestly!!

See them insulting the old man all over the place, the same man whose balls they were licking just hours ago having said he didnt like the manner Kanu was extradited to Nigeria.

You see, Yorubas take note of these people. The same people you see supporting Igboho were the same people that encouraged EndSars protests in Lagos. Since they failed in their quest to bring the west to her knees through EndSars, they're back in the trenches trying to achieve the same goal by encouraging Igboho.

Seunmsg, Sarrki, et al, ask your people to wake up o.
This is Nothing but the truth!

Yorubass don't even care about Igboho. They care about following Nnamdi Kanu's news.


You need brain. What concern Kanu with Yoruba?

And you too with open that your mouth tomorrow to preach about southern unity, to hell with you all.

but you attack us when we blast Sunday Igboho and his PDP sponsored Oduduwa group.

We just want to tell you that you are MAD.
No cap!

We are hiding Igboho with the state powers. We are not Igbos, we shall not release any of our warlords untill the last notorious bandit leader's head is presented by the North. Again, this is another propaganda in the series of propagandas against a man who has not killed a single person in his quest to demand freedom for his own people. You are telling me that Igboho needs a passport to travel out of the numerous porous borders of the Injustice Republic of Nigeria Another lie busted, another propaganda busted

He will soon show face again that he is in Nigeria. Fg will be chasing shadows up and down. How many Generals have been killed in this administration by those rag tag guys, non has been arrested.

Especially in that Abuja axis. Few days ago, it was another powerful General and one of his family members is still with them within the country oo and probably Abuja area o. They never gather intelligence reports on that.

They just acted like say normal things happened and no even a word from the presidency or dss to the best of my knowledge.

No wahala, sooner or later if it continues like that, oppressing the weak and equipping the strong, soon, and absolutely soon, it will reach everyone of them. Na Sunday and kanu make dem dey get ereksion for day in day out.

Last night, it was gathered that tens of villagers were killed by foolani bandits in igangan. They came en mass. It was not coincidence, that they are chasing ighoho, it will keeep on happening and they will intensify that in the coming months while dss are chasing so called freedom fighters here and there and or but giving the so called attackers freedom to move around.

But they have forgotten buhari will never be in power for ever. The game plan will change sooner or later, but when it happens no body should shout genocide. South is getting stronger and wiser day by day and no force from Niger and Chad can stop that.
By the way what happened to buhari body language odour that was being propagated when he first became president? Can't the body language odour can't solve this security challenges again ni.
