“I was home when they attacked my home”- Sunday Igboho speaks

Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo popular known as Sunday Igboho has explained how his Ibadan residence was attacked by men he claimed to be military personnel in the early hours of today July 1.

In an interview with BBC Yoruba, Igboho said

“I just heard plenty bullet in my compound and gunshot in front of my house. They were shouting Sunday Igboho come out, we are DSS, we are soldiers, come out!

So I peeped through the window, and I saw them in DSS uniform and soldiers so I was surprised because I didn’t kill anyone nor fight with anybody, what I’m doing is to fight for me people.

All the rally I’m doing is a peaceful rally, so I’m fighting for my family too because all the bandits killed my family, raped them kidnapped them and take ransom from them.

Government refused to do the right thing, that’s why I came out to support my family to fight for our right. So I was surprised.

Yes, I was in the house when they came. They killed about two guys. The shooting was too much. They destroyed all my properties, all my vehicles.”he said


I knew EOH was blackmailed by EC ANC for R1MN donation to win government tender “says” Kodwa.

Deputy State Security Minister, Zizi Kodwa, on Monday testified about receiving payments and luxury accommodation allegedly in exchange for influencing tenders.

JOHANNESBURG – Deputy State Security Minister Zizi Kodwa said he was aware that the Eastern Cape ANC blackmailed IT company EOH to make a R1 million donation when that company was bidding for a government tender.

Kodwa was on Monday testifying about receiving payments and luxury accommodation allegedly in exchange for influencing tenders.

He accepted that EOH director Jehan Mackay gave him money when he had financial difficulties, but said he made it clear that he couldn’t interfere with government contracts.

However, Kodwa knew that the ANC linked its requests for donations to tenders.

An email sent by EOH to Mackay saying the ANC Eastern Cape was pressurising the company to make a donation was forwarded to Kodwa.

Kodwa earlier said he didn’t receive payments from Mackay to influence tenders, but he said in this case, he persuaded EOH to make the donation.

Zondo said: “There appears to be something that was said and you might say, look I don’t think the ANC should pursue this donation, because if this donation is made and this entity gets the tender, there is going to be an impression that an ANC official used his or her influence to make sure that the tender went to a certain organisation.”
