The embattled Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has debunked the news of his arrest.
Igboho, whose house was invaded by operatives of Department of State Services (DSS)on Thursday, escaped the attack.
During the attack, two persons were killed while 13 persons were arrested and paraded by the DSS in Abuja.
Newspeakonline had reported that Igboho was arrested by the DSS at the Sat Guru Maharajji village on Friday
But Igboho debunked his rumoured arrest in a recorded voice message played on Facebook by his media aide, Olayomi Koiki, during a live show at about 11:59pm on Friday.
Igboho, who spoke in Yoruba language, said he was 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 Maharajji. It is a lie. I was not at Guru Maharajji. I am in my house in Ibadan and nobody arrested me.”
Meanwhile, one of Igboho’s maternal uncles simply identified as Alfa, was said to be one of those killed during the invasion of his residence by DSS operatives.
According to one of Igboho’s aides, Alfa was on a visit to the house and was praying when the security agents stormed the house and opened fire on them.
The second person who was shot dead during the raid on the house was identified as Saheed, popularly known as Adogan.
Adogan, was said to be an indigene of Osogbo, the Osun State capital, where Igboho has business interests.
