A Yoruba nation secessionist agitator, Sunday Igboho has endorsed a separatist “mega rally” organized by a group called the Ilana Omo Oodua (lOO), planning to hold in Lagos State, on Saturday, July 3, 2021.
Disclosing this in a statement, the Communications Secretary of the Group, Maxwell Adeleye notified that Sunday Igboho would be in attendance and that he endorse the rally because it “supports the actualisation of a Yoruba Nation.”
In addition, Adeleye notified that the group had had peaceful rallies in 5 different Yoruba-speaking states and that Lagos wouldn’t be an exception.
“Ilana Omo Oodua, under the leadership of renowned historian, Professor Banji Akintoye, has held peaceful rallies in five Yoruba-speaking states of Ekiti, Oyo, Osun, Ogun and Ondo, clamouring for the emergence of Yoruba Nation from the Republic of Nigeria.
“We are on the last leg to liberation. And as usual, this rally will be peaceful, well-coordinated and orderly.
“It was peaceful in Ibadan, well-conducted in Abeokuta, super orderly in Osogbo, fantastically coordinated in Akure and epochal in Ado-Ekiti.
“The Nigerian police cooperated well with us in all these places. We do not expect it to be different in Lagos. Be a witness to history,” the statement adds.
Furthermore, Adeleye, said: “the International community, the United Nations (UN), European Union (EUP), African Union (AU), Economic Community for West Africa (ECOWAS), and the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom have been invited to observe the rally.”
