'True that DSS killed some cats' - Igboho

The 51-year-old explained that during the DSS raid, they shot his cats dead too. He noted that he "did not turn into a cat to escape".

Although there were insinuations that the DSS and soldiers brought three herbalists, killed five cats, and ‘arrested’ one thinking Igboho transformed during the midnight raid, the Oyo-born self-acclaimed defender of the defenceless said the cats were only killed because “anything or movement attracted sporadic gunshots”.

His words:

“It is true that some cats were killed during the attack. Because the DSS just kept firing bullets in all directions. I was rearing cats as pets and I had many of them in my house. So, anything or movement attracted sporadic gunshots.
"Their mission was to either kill me or arrest me and take me to an unknown destination, but the Almighty God is greater than anybody in this world, including the despotic ex-President Muhammadu Buhari.
