Dennis Amachree, a former Assistant Director with the Department of State Services (DSS) has claimed that the possession of arms by Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho means he (Igboho) was ready for war.
Amachree stated this while featuring on a Channels TV Sunrise Daily programme monitored by GWG.
Recall DSS raided Igboho’s residence at Soka, in Ibadan, Oyo state. According to Peter Afunanya, the Public Relations Officer for DSS, “In the early hours (about 0134 hours) of today (Thursday, 1st July, 202)1, a joint team of security operatives raided the residence of Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo a.k.a. SUNDAY IGBOHO at Soka, Ibadan, Oyo State.
“This was based on intelligence that he had stockpiled arms in the place. On approach to the residence, the team came under heavy gun attack by nine (9) men, suspected to be IGBOHO’s guards.
“Six (6) of them were armed with AK-47 gun and Three (3) others, with Pump-Action riffles.
“Afterwards, the team procedurally searched the house and subsequently recovered the following among others: 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 Five (5) US Dollars in one (1) Dollar denomination; local and international driver’s licences in his name, ATM Cards, a German residence permit No. YO2N6K1NY bearing his name; Two (2) whistles; Fifty (5) Cartridges; Eighteen (18) Walkie-Talkies; Three Voodoo charm jackets/traditional body armour; Two (2) Laptops (One (1) Toshiba and One (1) Compaq); and His International Passport and those of many others”.
Commenting on the matter, Amachree said; “With all those loaded magazines, that means he is ready for war and I don’t think that is the way to go. If people are going for self-determination, there are peaceful ways of going about it”.
He also questioned why Igboho did not join the joint security network, AMotekun, launched by the South Western governors.
“We have Amotekun. Why is Sunday not operating with Amotekun? This is a question that should be asked but he is operating a separate thing different from Amotekun and of course, having all kinds of weapons”.
Meanwhile, Sunday Igboho has insisted the planned Yoruba Nation rally in Lagos state will still hold.
Igboho, who spoke through Olayomi Koiki, his spokesperson, said the rally will be peaceful and smooth, warning the police against formenting trouble and breaching public peace.
