The Department of State Services has broken the silence on the purported attempt to arrest Yoruba activist, Sunday Ighoho on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
A statement issued by Dr. 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 fake and therefore to be disregarded,” DSS said.
Reports claim that a violent attempt by a joint team of soldiers, DSS and policemen to arrest Igboho failed.
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.
