Sunday Adeyemo, a Yoruba rights activist popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has debunked speculations that he has been arrested, saying that he is still in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Igboho debunked his rumoured arrest in a recorded voice message played on Facebook by his media aide, Olayomi Koiki, on Friday.
The house of the Yoruba rights activist was invaded by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday in an apparent attempt to arrest him.
He, however, escaped, although two persons were killed and 13 persons were arrested.
An online medium had on Friday reported that Igboho was arrested by the DSS at the Sat Guru Maharaj Ji Camp and had been taken to Abuja.
But Igboho, who spoke in Yoruba language in the recorded audio, said he is still at his house in Ibadan.
He said, “Good evening my fans. I thank you all. My name is Sunday Igboho and today is July 2 , 2021. I have been hearing that they have arrested me at Guru Maharaj Ji. It is a lie. I was not at Guru Maharaj Ji. I am in my house in Ibadan and nobody arrested me.”
