Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho Adeyemo on Saturday stormed Akure, the Ondo State capital, alongside hundred of his supporters for the Yoruba nation rally.
Naija News reports that the agitators who comprised of women, youths, motor cycle riders, traders, artisans, and others, wore attires with the inscription ‘Omo Oduduwa ni mi.’ (I’m Oduduwa’s child).
They chanted various solidarity songs during the peaceful rally, which began at Isikan Roundabout and moved to other parts of the ancient town.
Speaking at the palace of the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo, Sunday Igboho insisted that there would not be 2023 election in Yoruba land.
According to the freedom fighter, South-west politicians have sold the region to the Fulani, adding that the campaign for Oduduwa Republic would not end until the Yoruba Nation becomes a reality.
He said: “Traditional rulers are supposed to be the father of all but they have been relegated and I believe all these anomalies would end when Yoruba Nation comes to being.
“Politicians have sold us to Fulani and now these Fulani are beyond their control. It is time we free ourselves. No going back on the agitation, no election in 2023 and I have a strong belief that we are going to succeed.”
Speaking further, Sunday Igboho stated that the Yoruba nationa rally was backed by the Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.
“The governor is aware of these things we are doing, we have his support. We are no more under the Fulani. All we want is Yoruba Nation,” Igboho declared.
Meanwhile, policemen, soldiers, personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps; and Amotekun were on the ground to maintain order.
