How DSS killed two unarmed persons including blind man during raid on Igboho’s house – Lawyer

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have been accused of killing two unarmed persons during the raid on Yoruba Nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho’s residence.

Pelumi Olajengbesi, the lawyer representing the 12 Igboho’s associates disclosed this in a recent interview, stating that the victims were unarmed as against what the DSS has earlier reported.

He identified the two victims as Saheed Adisa, popularly called Adogan and Igboho’s maternal uncle known as Alfa.

According to the lawyer, there was no gun battle between the secret police and Igboho’s aides. He explained that the victims were hiding when the DSS operatives shot them.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that DSS operatives had invaded Igboho’s residence in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, killing two of his associates, whom they claimed were armed and arrested 12 suspects during the operation.

The DSS released eight of the 12 detained associates of Igboho after initially disobeying a court ruling on the matter.

Olajengbesi said: “The people that SSS (State Security Service also called DSS) claimed that they killed in a gun duel, those people were actually hiding during the battle, trying to prevent themselves from being killed because any room the SSS operatives entered, they sprayed bullets.

“Those people were harmless, they were hiding, and they were in the dark.

“As a matter of fact, one of the person’s killed was because he was blind, he couldn’t see.

“Two persons were killed. One was blind. One was in the bathroom hiding, they got in there and sprayed bullets.”

One of the associates responded saying that “Alfa is the one, he could not see, those killed were hiding for safety.”
