The Department of State Service (DSS) has invited a leader of a Yoruba socio-cultural group, Kiriji Heritage Defenders, Dr Ademola Ekundayo, over a planned protest by his group in Osun State.

Naija News reports that the secret police interrogated Ekundayo on Monday following speculations some Yoruba groups were planning secession protests following the disrupted rally by security operatives in Ibadan on April 17, 2021.

He was said to have been interrogated at the DSS headquarters in Osogbo for about four hours before he was released.

Reacting, Ekundayo confirmed that he was invited by DSS, adding that the group is not a criminal group and not a secessionist group.

He said: “We are not criminals or collaborating with any criminal group.

“The security men are just being proactive. We are not secessionists in Kiriji Heritage Defenders.

“The decision for the rally to hold in Osun is beyond our group. Other notable groups will take that decision when the time comes. Our major preoccupation is security across Yoruba borders.”
