BREAKING: Adeleye Resigns As Spokesperson For Ilana Omo Oodua

The Leader and National Chairman, Yoruba Self-Determination Struggle, also known as Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Wale Adeniran, has announced his immediate resignation as a member of the group following allegations of fraud and embezzlement.

Naija News reports that Adeniran announced his resignation in a two-minute 33 seconds video on YouTube (Omoboriowo media) on Saturday.

According to the Yoruba nations leader, he is stepping aside to allow a thorough investigation into the allegation of fraud levelled against him.

He, however, challenged any body with evidence or evidences against him or who might have sent money to the organisation through him to come forward and make it known to the public.

He said, “I want to use this medium to step aside as Chairman of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, as member of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, I step down as the participant in the Yoruba Nation struggle so as to allow for unfettered investigations of all these allegations.

“Because in all developed parts of the world, what they normally do is that, if there is an allegation against public office holder, he or she will step aside to allow thorough investigation, that’s what I’m doing right now.

“I thank you all, and whatever comes out after the investigation should be made public. There shouldn’t be secret there. They should publicise the outcome of the investigation because all Yoruba must know the truth about the fraud allegation involving the struggle. Thank you.”

His resignation is coming hours after the spokesman of the Yoruba self-determination struggle group, Maxwell Adeleye, resigned from his position.

In a statement on Friday night, Adeleye stated that he has also withdrawn from agitation for the Yoruba Nation.

He also asked the former leader of the apex body, Prof. Banji Akintoye, to withdraw 100 percent from the organisation and allow proper audit of his stewardship.
