Armed gunmen have reportedly attacked the residence of Yoruba Nation agitator, Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
One of his media aides, Dapo Salami, who confirmed the attack to newsmen said the residence was attacked early Thursday morning.
“Yes, I was told his house was attacked but he is fine. I am on my way there now to see what happened.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State, Adewale Osifeso, when contacted, said he also heard but does not have enough information at the moment.
It was gathered that the house was invaded around 2am on Thursday with its walls and cars in the compound riddled with bullets.
Some of the occupants of the house were said to have been whisked away by the invaders who were claimed to have dressed in military camouflage.

One of Igboho’s houses was attacked and set ablaze by some hoodlums in January.
In April his Soka residence was also attacked and this attack is coming just two days to the Yoruba Nation rally Igboho is billed to attend in Lagos.
Meanwhile, the Federal Government of Nigeria has released an official statement on Nnamdi Kanu’s re-arrest.
Part of the statement by Lai Mohammed reads:
We can tell you that the forensic investigation carried out so far has revealed a treasure trove of information on the proscribed IPOB leader and his collaborators. While the investigation continues, we assure you that none of the collaborators, irrespective of their standing in the society, will be spared. They will all face the full wrath of the law for their activities that challenge our nation’s sovereignty and threaten its unity. No one, no matter how highly placed, is bigger than the country.
