Igboho said the arsonists damaged the gate to gain entrance to the building and that the two occupants of the house were able to flee the scene to avoid being killed.

He, however, noted that properties worth over N50m was damaged in building.

Igboho while responding to journalists said, “when the fire started, they called me and by the time i got there the arsonists had ran away. They are cowards. Why couldn’t they come to where i live? You would have seen evidence because they won’t escape.”

When quizzed on claims by Senator Babafemi Ojudu that he (Sunday Igboho) was hired as a political thug, Igboho said, “I don’t know him, he is a liar, I was not trained by Baba Adedibu. Senator Ladoja is my boss and I have never betrayed him”

Senator Ojudu who is a Special Adviser to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on political matters in his article which went viral on Monday claimed that he met with Sunday Igboho in Ibadan and later took him to Tinubu in Akure during the 2009 rerun election in Ekiti where he was engaged to neutralized the operation of the PDP hired thugs .

But Sunday while denying the claims said, “Senator Ojudu should use his children to swear that such things happened. It is a plot to distract me and give me a bad name, i never collect money from politicians to do this, and it is painful that politicians are conniving with fulani to distract us but i will never be distracted.

From my investigation about him, I have found out he made no impact as a Commissioner in Lagos and as a senator in Ekiti. What are his achievement? How many people did he help? How many projects did he facilitate? It was Fayose that achieved many things in Ekiti. Tell Ojodu to caution himself.”

The Commander, U.S. Africa Command, U General Stephen Townsend, wrapped up a three-day West African visit February 22-25, 2021, with a stopover in Nigeria to meet with the nation’s leaders and further the long-standing partnership and security cooperation between the two countries.

A press statement by the Embassy on Friday, said: “During the visit, Townsend met with the Nigerian President’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, and National Security Adviser, Babagan Monguno, to discuss regional security issues and to express the command’s gratitude for the assistance provided during a hostage rescue operation last year.

“When we asked for their help, the Nigerian government answered the call. Our hostage recovery mission in October would have been impossible without their support.

“They quickly provided assistance that helped the U.S. military to save an American life. That is a strong example of our partnership with Nigeria.”

Townsend also met with senior military officials, including the Minister of Defence, Bashir Salihi Magash, and the Chief of Defence Staff, General Leo Irabor, to talk about on-going cooperation in the region and greater maritime security and threat mitigation.

Nigeria is a key partner in countering violent extremist organizations throughout the Lake Chad Basin.

Townsend said furthermore: “The bilateral relationship between Nigeria and the U.S. is built on several pillars including security cooperation.

“U.S. Africa Command will do our part to advance the security cooperation pillar, so that Nigerians can enjoy the more secure future they all deserve.”

As close partners, the U.S. and Nigeria have worked at ensuring the collaborative relationship continues to grow to include a commitment to interoperability. Nigeria purchased 12 A-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft, which will be delivered later this year.

“Nigeria’s purchase of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft is another example of their commitment to interoperability and security in the region,” he added. “Our economic relationship with Nigeria is already strong, and we look forward to the continued strengthening of security relationships. Nigeria’s leaders understand the importance of a collaborative approach to ensuring stability in West Africa and partnering on areas of mutual interest.”

The Commander also met with the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.

Leonard said: “General Townsend’s visit to Nigeria demonstrates the strategic importance the United States places on our bilateral relationship with Nigeria.

“Our security cooperation partnership with Nigeria’s military will strengthen the country’s capabilities to secure land and sea borders, enhance overall security, and combat terrorism in the North East.”

As part of the visit, Townsend participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Nigeria Military National Cemetery to honour those who have given their lives in the service of their nation.

During the visit, the delegation expressed their condolences for the seven service men killed in the crash of a Nigerian Air Force aircraft in Abuja.
