The apex body of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, Ilana Omo Oodua, has provided some graphic details of the operations of the Department of State Services at the Ibadan home of Yoruba youth leader and activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo a.k.a Sunday Igboho in the July 1 midnight raid.
According to the group led by Prof.Banji Akintoye, a second republic senator, an associate of Igboho, Saheed Adisa popularly called Adogan, was shot 48 times during the midnight invasion.
It was revealed that when Adogan’s body repelled all the bullets the operatives allegedly used a pestle (of a mortar) to smash his head.
“He was butchered like a criminal or bandit,” the group said in a post on social media.
“This is the face of a true warrior. His name is Adogan. He took 48 bullets to his body and was still standing like a fearless Ikoyi Eso. When bullets failed the DSS, they had to slam a mortal on his head, butchering him to death.
“While DSS operatives were butchering Adogan, Majasola Igboho Oosa (May peace and blessings of Eedua always be with him) had made his exit to fight another day.
“It was said that Adogan’s body was so brutally decapitated by the DSS that they were ashamed to leave his body behind.
“They whisked his body away, but his blood literally trailed them from Chief Igboho’s living room to the DSS headquarters in Abuja.
“Trust me, we will take our revenge. RIP my good brother! No going back on Yoruba nation. Lagos rally goes on, as planned, tomorrow. Ifa Dare,” the group stated.
Adogan is survived by an aged mother, wife, three children and siblings.
Persecondnews had reported that on July 1, DSS had in Abuja paraded 13 people including Igboho’s security guards and a woman.
The DSS also admitted that its officers killed two of his associates — Adogan and Alfa — in the bloody raid.
It destroyed properties worth millions of naira including exotic cars in the house and thereafter declared Igboho wanted.
He is being accused by the DSS of “stockpiling arms to destabilise the country”.
