Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, has accused the Department of State Security (DSS) of framing him by planting large cache of arms and ammunition in his house.
Okay.ng recalls that the DSS had on Thursday at a press briefing displayed weapons it allegedly recovered from the house of the Yoruba Nation activist during a raid.
The DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, said the security police recovered Seven (7) AK-47 assault rifles; Three (3) Pump Action guns; Thirty (30) fully charged AK-47 magazines; Five Thousand (5,000) rounds of 7.62mm ammunition; Five (5) Cutlasses, One (1) Jack knife, One (1) Pen Knife; Two (2) Pistol holsters; One (1) binoculars; A wallet containing and Five (5) US Dollars in one (1) Dollar denomination.
However, Igboho, in a press statement issued by his media aide, Olayomi Koiki, said the guns found in his house were ‘government magic’, stating that he only makes use of traditional powers for protection.
“The invasion on my house was done without a search warrant. I was not invited for questioning, investigation at any government facility before the invasion.
“Federal government framed me up and the sequence of events brings the truth bare. Why would the security agents invade my home at night and destroy my surveillance cameras before carrying out their operation if not that they had an ulterior motive? In this modern age of technological advancement, why did the security operatives not put on body cameras to record their activities from the point of entry to their time of exit?
“I am a law-abiding citizen without blemish. I advise President Buhari to, in the interest of Nigerians that voted him to power, order his henchmen to desist from using falsehood and unholy tactics to soil my name,” the statement reads partly.
