The Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday said a team of joint security operatives raided the home of Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho in Ibadan.
Its spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunanya, disclosed this in a briefing with journalists on Thursday evening.
He said the raid was based on intelligence that Igboho was stockpiling arms to cause unrest.
He said when the security operatives approached the house, they were attacked by six Igboho’s boys who engaged them in a gun battle.
Two of Igboho’s men were killed while an operative sustained injuries, Afunanya said.
He said Igboho escaped during the gun battle.
He said Igboho is on the run but the law would catch up with it.
Afunanya urged Igboho to turn himself into security agencies.
