I’ve not been arrested, Igboho says in recorded speech
The embattled Yoruba National agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has debunked the news of his arrest.
Igboho, whose house was invaded on Thursday, escaped the invasion, although two persons were killed and 13 persons were arrested and paraded by the Department of State Services in Abuja.
But late on Friday night, an online medium had reported that Igboho was arrested by the DSS at the Sat Guru Maharaj Ji Camp and had been taken to Abuja.
Igboho’s aides, as well as those close to Guru Maharaj Ji, told our correspondent in separate interviews that the story was not true.
Igboho also 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 Maharaj Ji. It is a lie. I was not at Guru Maharaj Ji. I am in my house in Ibadan and nobody arrested me.” [sic]
