The Department of State Service (DSS) has described as “untrue” the claim by Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, that operatives of the service attacked him in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
The DSS was said to have allegedly attacked Igboho at Sat Guru Maraji’s area in Ibadan on Friday, while he was going to a point of unknown meeting in the state capital.

Igboho, while speaking with newsmen, had lamented that he was disappointed that he was attacked without committing any offence by men of DSS who on the instruction of unknown authorities, attempted to prevent him to move around in Ibadan and beyond.
But refuting the claim in a Whatsapp message sent to journalists in Abuja, the spokesperson of DSS, Peter Afunanya, said the news reporting that Igboho was attacked “is misinforming” and should be regarded as fake news.
Afunanya said there is no iota of truth whatsoever, calling on Nigerians to disregard such publication.
He stressed that the operatives of the service did not arrest Igboho and had never attempted to arrest him for any reason.
“The Department of State Services wishes to refute the news that it attempted to arrest one Sunday Igboho, today, at Ibadan, Oyo State. The said news is misinforming and should taken as fake and therefore be disregarded,” Afunanya said.
