OYO: We cannot stoop so low to spy on one individual, DHQ replies Igboho

THE Defence Headquarters has denied sending some soldiers to the residence of the popular self-acclaimed Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho.

The headquarters said this following a viral video that showed two alleged spies being pursued by Igboho’s supporters in Ibadan as they fled on a motorcycle.

They were subsequently caught and taken to Igboho’s residence in the Soka area of Ibadan.

But reacting to the incident, the acting Director, Defence Media Operations, Brig. Gen. Bernard Onyeuko, in a statement yesterday, titled, ‘Re: Sunday Igboho apprehends alleged soldiers, accuses Federal Government of spying on him,” dismissed the allegations that the Federal Government masterminded the incident, pointing out that the person involved was a serial impersonator and not a soldier as alleged.

The DHQ stressed that it has said it has launched a probe into the allegations. 

He said, “For the avoidance of doubt, preliminary investigation has so far revealed that one of the alleged “soldiers” is a serial impersonator.

“Meanwhile, credible eye witnesses and sources have also revealed that some associates of Igboho went in pursuit of some individuals when the motorbike conveying the impersonator and one Nigerian Air Force officer ran into them.

“The duo were immediately apprehended and taken to the said “IGBOHO House” at Soka before Ibadan toll gate where they were branded as spies. Furthermore, investigations are currently underway by Nigerian Airforce and the Nigerian Army to unravel the actual circumstances which played out on the day.”

The statement said the military “cannot stoop so low to such extent to ‘spy’ on one individual, as wildly and loosely alleged,” noting that the armed forces of Nigeria “is a highly disciplined and professional organization with extant laws and regulations which guide the actions of its personnel in the conduct of their duties.”

Igboho had accused the military of spying on him in order to arrest him following his comments that Yoruba no longer a part of Nigeria.
