Sunday Adeyemo, alias Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba rights activist, and Prof. Banji Akintoye, a famous historian, will join the massive protest for the actualization of Yoruba Nation on July 3rd. in Lagos.
According to a statement released on Monday by Ilana Omo Oodua, the umbrella group of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, which recently conducted peaceful protests in Ekiti, Oyo, Osun, Ogun, and Ondo in support of the Yoruba Nation’s independence from Nigeria.
The message was signed by IOO General Secretary George Akinola and made accessible to journalists by Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, the group’s Media Communications Secretary.
If realized, the “Yoruba Nation shall be the shining pride of the Black race,” according to the organization, which vowed a peaceful protest in Lagos.
The United Nations, the European Union, the African Union, the Economic Community of West African States, as well as the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom, have been invited to attend the event.
“Ilana Omo Oodua and her friends have finalized plans to conduct the Lagos State edition of the Yoruba Nation massive rallies on July 3, 2021.
“It’ll be a thrill as we eventually sink the doomed union in the Atlantic Ocean; welcome to the dazzling grandeur of the black race!”
“The Lagos demonstration will be one of the major rally storms that have been sweeping Yorubaland elegantly and quietly, and all Yoruba sons and daughters are invited to come out and stamp their unmistakable authority on the land,” he said. This is our territory!
“Please wear your Yoruba Nation regalia, including vests, t-shirts, and Omoluabi whites. Raise your flags and belt out the Yoruba national anthem, Ogo Adulawo.
“We’re on the home stretch to freedom. This rally will be peaceful, well-coordinated, and orderly, as is customary. Ibadan was calm, Abeokuta was well-run, Osogbo was incredibly orderly, Akure was beautifully organized, and Ado-Ekiti was historic.
“In all of these locations, the Nigerian police collaborated nicely with us. In Lagos, we don’t expect things to be any different. “Be a part of history,” the statement said.
