Olayomi Koiki, the spokesman of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has explained that he was quoted out of context on the alleged plot to eliminate his principal in Cotonou prison, Benin Republic.
Koiki on Wednesday said at no time did he say enemies wanted to eliminate Igboho.
“I was quoted out of context. I was referring to Prof. Banjo Akintoye in my statement,” Koiki told Vanguard.
“I said, if they are planning evil against Prof. Banji Akintoye and others, they are only trying but God’s power is superior.
“I further said enemies are trying to eliminate Prof. Akintoye (not Igboho) to silence the Yoruba nation agenda.”
Recall that DAILY GIST had reported how Ighoho’s house in Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo state was attacked by the operatives of DSS
The Department of State Services(DSS) confirmed that its responsible for the attack on Sunday Igboho’s house.
DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya disclosed this in a statement made available to Journalists.
According to Peter, The raid was based on intelligence that Igboho had allegedly stockpiled arms and ammunition in his house.
But Igboho in a statement released by his media aide, Koiki said the weapons paraded by the DSS as recovered from his house did not belong to him.
Igboho noted that the guns found in his house were ‘government magic stating that he used traditional power to protect himself instead rather than guns.
The activist added that there was no prior invitation sent to him by the agency neither was any search warrant used by the officers who invaded his home.
According to him, the invasion at his house was an attempt by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to silence him so the killer-herdsmen, whom he always antagonized, will take over the South-West region.

He has since been remanded inside prison in Benin Republic until next court hearing
