Unidentified gunmen have reportedly killed two persons at the Soka, Ibadan, home of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho, at 1 a.m. on Thursday, July 1.
Confirming the incident, the media aide to Igboho, Olayomi Koiki, in a Facebook live this morning, said the gunmen dressed in military apparel, stormed the residence and carried out the attack.
This is as cars and property worth millions of naira were destroyed during the attack on the home of the Yoruba rights activist.
“The situation now is very bad. Two Yoruba sons have been killed in the house of Chief Sunday Igboho. The two dead bodies have been taken away by the military. We do not know of the location where they were taken to”
Koiki said “I can confirm that those who came are definitely Nigerian soldiers. There are more than 100 soldiers that came. The situation is very active as more security operatives in about seven Nigerian Army patrol vans have arrived.”
The Nigerian Army is yet to confirm or deny any involvement in the attack.
Spokesperson to Sunday Igboho, Olayomi Koiki, who revealed this in an online video, claimed that the attack was carried out by men dressed in military uniforms.
He also claimed that some people in the house were taken away.
