Combined security operatives made an attempt on Friday to arrest Popular Yoruba Activist, Chief Sunday Adeyemo well-known as Sunday Igboho along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
In a viral video, Igboho who was topless, dared security operatives to “do their worst” before they drove off the scene.
It was learnt that Sunday Igboho was on his way to Lagos to visit Chief Ayo Adebanjo, a Yoruba leader and an Elder statesman.
I just spoke to my brother Sunday Igboho. He told me there was a violent attempt to arrest him this afternoon by a joint team of soldiers, DSS operatives & policemen numbering about 40 on the Ibadan/Lagos Expressway whilst he was on his way to see Baba Ayo Adebanjo in Lagos. 1/ pic.twitter.com/tjyuKH58Bv

Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, who confirmed the incident, said Sunday Igboho was on his way to meet with 93-year-old Afenifere Chieftain, Ayo Adebanjo, when the incident occurred.
In a statement, he said: “Let me also send a warning to the Federal Government that Sunday Igboho is a hero to millions of Yoruba and either killing him or detaining him unlawfully would be the biggest mistake they could make.
“Building bridges, dialogue and the pursuit of peace is better than intimidation, threats, violence and war. A word is enough for the wise.”
