Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has said that he was not planning to launch reprisal attack on the killer of his aide, Ebeneezer Abiola at Oke-Fia area in Osogbo, Osun State.
Ebenezer, who is popularly known as Biola Igboho, was allegedly murdered by a suspected political thugs over superiority tussle. The incident has caused apprehension as residents panic fearing that Igboho might strike in vengeance.
Igboho is popular as a powerful man because of his role in the Ife/Modakeke communal war. His close associate said Igboho was sad over the death of Ebenezer.
Speaking on the death of Ebenezer through a press statement made available to Ojutole Online media by his spoke person, Olakunle Taiwo, Igboho debunked the insinuation of the reprisal attack.
He said: “Ebeneezer was a good and loyal boy who didn’t pass his boundary. Even when I travel out of the country for weeks he followed my instructions, likewise others who are with me. Everybody sees all my aides as fine boys and I always tell them to maintain peace at all times.
His death was so painful, I must confess, but I have no plan to launch any reprisal attack whatsoever. A lot of people are angry about the matter and want us to revenge but I have said nobody should take laws into his hands because it is not a war.”
“Influential people in the Police and politicians in Abuja and Osun State have called me to sympathize with me. I have taken a lawful step by meeting with the Police to ensure the murderers are brought to book.
“So, those panicking that I would bounce on the state and destroy or disrupt her peace are from troublemakers who want to drag my name into the mud. But I am not bothered; I will not fight an unlawful fight. Justice will be sought in the right way,” he said.
