‘I wasn’t sexually molested in DSS custody’

A female associate of Chief Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho), Ms. Hamudat Babatunde, has denied claims that she was sexually molested by men of the Department of State Security (DSS) while in their custody in Abuja.

Ms. Babatunde (aka Lady K), was among the 13 persons arrested in the wake of the July 1, 2021 raid on the Ibadan residence of Adeyemo.

Hamudat and 11 others were granted bail on August 4, 2021 by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

In a statement in Ibadan yesterday, she denied claims in a viral video by one Alimi Shakiru Adebare that DSS men tear-gassed her private part during her 118 days incarceration in their custody.

Babatunde said the video defamed her and caused her trauma, disclosing that she has been receiving calls from family, friends and associates who expressed worry over the claim.

She called in the security agency to investigate the claim which she described as unfounded.

The statement reads: “Though I spent 118 days in DSS custody after our arrest at Chief Sunday Adeyemo’s residence in Ibadan, I was never molested or sexually abused by any agent or officer of the DSS. The man making this false claim must be arrested to face justice for choosing to spread falsehood to the public about the activities of the security agency.

“I have been traumatised and many people have been calling me about this destructive mission by Adebare. I’m a woman and any responsible woman worth her salt will not take kindly to action capable of impugning her womanhood in African society. This spurious and malicious allegation by Adebare, who has dedicated his Facebook page to destroy my integrity and disseminate blatant lies about the DSS, must be investigated.

“I have no regret being part of the peaceful agitation for Yoruba nation under the leadership of Prof. Banji Akintoye and Chief Sunday Igboho because our cause was constitutional, just and tenable.

“More importantly, the DSS should not allow this campaign of calumny against their organisation go without taking decisive action to bring the perpetrator to justice as a deterrent to others”. NATION
