“On approach to the residence, the team came under heavy gun attack by nine men, suspected to be Igboho’s guards. Six of them were armed with AK-47 guns and three others, with pump-action rifles,” Afunnaya said in a statement.”

DSS operatives carried out a midnight raid on Igboho’s residence in the Soka area of Ibadan Oyo State in early July.
