The Presidency has explained why the DSS raided the Ibadan home of Yoruba agitator Sunday Igboho. 

A statement by Presidential Aide, Malam Garba Shehu, on behalf of President Buhari, accused Igboho, who has been canvassing for a Yoruba Nation, of “conducting acts of terror and disturbing the peace under the guise of protecting fellow “kinsmen”.

“His seditious utterances and antics, which he is known to have publicly expressed, have over time morphed into very hateful and vile laden speeches”, Shehu said.

He went on to highlight that the "government respects fundamental rights of citizens to express their views and recognizes this as a democratic tenet" but will not condone "any attempt to build an armoury coupled with plans either subtle or expressed to undermine our unity as a nation"
