Yoruba World Congress president Oladotun Hassan said that If anything happens to any Yoruba tribe Malami will be held accountable.
He said the protest was peaceful solidarity for the South-West security outfit ‘Amotekun’that was declared illegal by the Nigerian government.
“We are tired of these senseless killings. From the report I received in Ogun and Osun States, armed police officers are at their respective venue of the protest to hinder the solidarity walk.”
We gathered that people in Lagos have started gathering for the rally slated to hold in support of Operation Amotekun, the security outfit set up by the governors of South-West states to secure the region from the menace of banditry, kidnapping, and other criminal activities.
However, men of Nigeria Police have barricaded the Gani Fawehinmi Park where the event is to hold, thereby preventing entrance into the park.
Also in Oyo State, security operatives at the protest venue have been boosted with the presence of officers from the Department of State Service (DSS) and Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
Inscriptions on the banners displayed by the protesters read “Yoruba Omo Oodua: Protect Yourself, Amotekun”, “On Amotekun we stand”, “We want to know who owns the Land. Amotekun”, No Amotekun, No Hisbah”, among others.
