Fani-Kayode asks DSS to release bodies of Igboho’s men for burial


Former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has asked the Department of State Security Service (DSS) to release two bodies of (Adisa Saheed and Alhaji Fatai) killed when it raided the home of popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo better known as Igboho in Ibadan, Oyo State recently.


He specifically implored the secret police and other authorities to release them to their grieving families for a befitting burial if the bodies are still intact.

Against the backdrop of DSS had declared Igboho a wanted man after it accused him of being in possession of illegal arms and taking up arm against the State

While condemning the DSS-led attack on Igboho’s home in a Facebook post on Sunday, Fani-Kayode argued that whether Adeyemo is loved or hated, “No-one deserves to be buried like a dog by his or her enemies”.

“Where are the bodies of these two men? Were they burnt, chopped up or are they still intact?”, he asked.

“If they are still intact I implore the authorities, in the name of the Living God, to release them to their families for a befitting burial. That is the least they could do.

“No-one deserves to be buried like a dog by his or her enemies”, he said.

The former minister also accused the Kenya government for torturing the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra’s acclaimed leader, Nnamdi Kanu after his arrest, an allegation that the Kenya government denied vehemently.

TheNewspad had reported that the IPOB leader, was rearrested and arraigned in court on 11 count charge including treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of fire arms and remanded in DSS custody, pending the continuation of his trial on July 26.

Yet, Fani Kayode, “Whether you love Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or hate him the thought that the Kenyans can torture him and subject him to inhuman treatment without any consequence is outrageous, nauseating and deplorable. I have been reliably informed that he suffered injuries in their hands. This is barbaric”.

Recall that on Saturday, Sunday Igboho wrote a petition to the federal government protesting damage to his residence, cars and other property by state agents.

In a letter through his counsel Chief Yomi Alliyu (SAN), Igboho estimated his losses at N500million and demanded same as reparation.

He also sought a public apology for what he called violation of his fundamental rights during the invasion of his house and the institution of a probe of the action of the security officials that conducted the raid.
