Yoruba traditional rulers from Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Kwara and Kogi states, on Sunday, demanded the immediate release of 13 aides of the Yoruba freedom fighter, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, who were arrested by the Department of State Service, DSS, during a recent raid on his Ibadan residence.

The monarchs, under the banner of the Forum of Yoruba Obas, also demanded adequate compensation for the families of two aides who were shot dead by the DSS during the midnight invasion of Igboho’s house, located at Soka, Ibadan in Oyo.

In a statement titled: ‘The Position of The Yoruba Obas on the Invasion of Sunday Adeyemo’s House by the DSS and State of The Nation’, the monarchs described the invasion as illegal and a gross violation of the fundamental human rights of Igboho, his aides and the deceased.

The statement was signed by its president Oba Samuel Adeoye, who is the Molokun of Atijere kingdom in Ondo State and secretary, Olukotun of Ikotun Ile, Oba Abdurasaq Abioye in Kwara.

It reads: “We strongly condemn in its entirety the invasion and the gruesome murder of the people at Sunday Igboho’s house on the 1st July, 2021.

“We believe that the killing by the officers of the DSS is unwarranted and unjustifiable, a violent breach of the fundamental right of those who were killed by the overzealous officers at Sunday Adeyemo’s house his residence.

“We, hereby, call for the immediate release of those arrested at his residence. We demand that there must be adequate compensation for the family of those people who were murdered during the operation. We equally in the same vein call on President Muhammadu Buhari to cause a discrete and holistic investigation on this volatile issue.
