A prominent Ifa priest, Chief Ifayemi Elebuibon, has described as tragic, the raid by operatives of the Department of State Services on the Ibadan residence of Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho.
The diviner also said Igboho didn’t abandon his associates who were in his Soka, Ibadan residence when the secret police raided the house early Thursday but rather, the activist ran away to fight another day.
Thirteen of Igboho’s guards and close associates were also arrested and paraded by the DSS while two of his followers were reportedly killed in a gun duel with the secret police.
However, Igboho, who said in an interview on Thursday that he was in the house when the DSS came, escaped the raid.
Many have since wondered why Igboho didn’t help his associates to escape but speaking in an interview with newsmen on Friday, Elebuibon maintained that Igboho didn’t abandon his aides but he ran to fight another day.
Responding to questions, the Ifa priest also faulted the Gestapo style in which the DSS raided Igboho’s house.
He advised the DSS to learn from their counterparts in civilised nations who effect arrests in a peaceful and non-violent manner.
Meanwhile, the secret police has Since declared Igboho wanted and the activist is being accused of stockpiling weapons to destabilise the country under the guise of agitation for Yoruba nation.
