By Henry Okonkwo

Supporters of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, have taken to the streets of Ibadan, Oyo State capital, to protest last Thursday’s midnight raid by the Department of State Services on his residence.

The protesters were said to have gathered in front of Igboho’s house in the Sooka area of Ibadan from where they took to the streets around noon on Wednesday.

A leader of the protesting youth addressed the gathering before they took off.

He said, “It is a peaceful demonstration; we are marching to demand the release of the detained persons. We are not afraid of teargas, we are marching to demand the rights of our people.

“We want them to bring the killers of Adogan and Alfa to book.

“We want the Obas to make this happen within seven days.”
