DSS frees Sunday Igboho’s alleged herbalist after six months
The Department of State Services has released one Dada Ifasooto, who was accused of preparing charms for the embattled Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho.
Ifasooto was arrested on July 16, two weeks after the DSS raided the Yoruba Nation activist’s Ibadan residence, leaving two of his aides dead.
However, after spending six months in detention, The PUNCH reports that Ifasooto has regained his freedom.
His release was confirmed on Friday by one of Igboho’s lawyers in Nigeria, Pelumi Olajengbesi, in a statement titled, ‘Dada Ifasooto Released from DSS Custody’.
It read, “This is to announce the release of Mr. Dada Ifasooto who was secretly arrested by the State Security Service (SSS) on 16th July, 2021 on the allegation that he is a native doctor who prepares charms for Chief Sunday Igboho.
“Mr. Dada Ifasooto’s whereabouts was unknown for months until one of the released detainees from SSS custody informed our office that he is in the custody of the Secret Service in an underground cell.
“The strange allegations against Mr. Dada Ifasooto and his incarceration defies logical and legal thoughts and underpins the ill-motivated persecution of Chief Sunday Igboho and his associates. Amongst other things, it exposes the straw-clutching antics of the State Security Service in this matter even as it underscores the ridiculous and unlawful length the agency is willing to go.”
