Share

The Yoruba activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has spoken about the attack on his Ibadan home on Thursday morning, saying he was in the house and saw two people shot dead.

Speaking to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Pidgin Service on Thursday afternoon, Igboho alleged that those who came to attack his house were officers of the Department of State Services (DSS) and men of the Nigerian Army.

He also claimed that two people were killed during the attack which he said happened around 1:30 a.m., adding that he peeped through the window and saw everything that happened.

According to him: “Around 1:30 a.m., I just heard gunshots in front of my house with the attackers saying ‘all of you come out, we are DSS, we are soldiers.’

“I peeped through the window, saw them in uniforms–DSS uniform and the uniform of the Nigerian Army. I was surprised, wondering what the problem was. I never killed anybody, I never fought anybody, what I’m doing is to fight for my people.

“I’m fighting for my family because the Fulani bandits killed my family, raped them, kidnapped them, took ransoms from them. Government has refused to do the right thing for my family, that’s why I come out for my people to fight for our right. So, I was surprised.”

Asked by the BBC how many people were killed and how many were taken away, Igboho said: “I was in the house this morning when they came. There were two guys that they killed around 2:00 a.m. when shooting was so much. They destroyed all my property, all the property that I have. I had about N2 million inside my wardrobe, I can’t find it again

Four years after Muhammadu Sanusi II was deposed as the Emir of Kano, Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State has reinstated him to the throne.

“With the full support of the kingmakers, I have approved the reappointment of Malam Sanusi Lamido,” the governor said to cheers at the Art Chamber of the Kano State Government House around 5:16 pm on Thursday.

He announced the decision right after signing the Kano State Emirate Council (Repeal) Bill 2024 into law.

The new law replaces the Kano State Emirates Council Law, 2019, and dissolves the emirate councils created by Governor Yusuf’s predecessor Abdullahi Ganduje.

It was based on the law that Ganduje split the Kano Emirate into five in December 2019 and deposed the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II on March 9, 2020. The emirates created by the Ganduje administration were Karaye, Bichi, Rano, and Gaya, in addition to Kano.
