Gunmen on Monday morning stormed the Ibadan, Oyo State residence of rights activist Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho.
It was gathered that the gunmen opened fire on getting to the area.
The activist’s spokesman Olayomi Koiki claimed in a viral video shared on Facebook that the residence was besieged by soldiers with the aim of arresting the activist.
“There is a situation right now where the Federal Government of Nigeria tried to invade our residence. We are telling the world that the war that the Federal Government is waiting for might start today,” he said.
“The war that the Federal Government think they are expecting from the Yoruba people; let’s tell the whole world. As I speak to you, there is an ongoing incident but we are more than capable.
“We cannot be caught unguarded. You cannot threaten us. Chief Sunday Igboho is fine.”
Security agents had in February attempted to arrest Sunday Igboho along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
