13 Arrested During Raid On Sunday Igboho’s Residence – DSS
The Department of State Services (DSS) told the media yesterday that it had arrested 13 suspects when the department raided the Ibadan residence of Sunday Igboho.
The public relations officer of DSS, Dr Peter Afunanya, disclosed this at a media briefing on Thursday in Abuja.
He said the operation was carried out based on an intelligence report that Igboho had stockpiled firearms in his house.
According to him, on approaching the residence, the DSS team came under heavy gun attack by nine men, suspected to be Igboho’s guards.
He added that six of the men were armed with AK-47 and the three others with pump-action rifles.
“In the course of the exchange, two of Igboho’s armed men were gunned down while the rest were subdued and arrested.
“Only one DSS operative, who was shot by the assailants on his right hand, sustained injury. He has, however, received medical attention and is very stable,’ he said.
