Self acclaimed Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has announced his plan to lead a ‘Yoruba Nation’ protest in Lagos.
Igboho said the rally would hold on July 3 at Freedom Park in Ojota. The proposed rally was announced through the acclaimed activist’s spokesperson, Olayomi Koiki, on Facebook.
“We are sending a peaceful message to Governor Sanwo-Olu. We do not mind any other person who is saying we should not come to Lagos. Sanwo-Olu is the chief security officer of the land and we are coming to Lagos.
“July 3rd is the most important date; nobody cannot say we should not come to Lagos. It is a peaceful rally.”
TheNewsGuru.com, Tthat Igboho held in Ogun, Ondo, Osun, Ekiti and Oyo States. In some cases, police forcefully dispersed the agitators.
The Lagos police spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, said he is not aware of the rally.
“I am not aware of Sunday Igboho’s planned Lagos rally. When the command is aware, the command will react to that. For now, we are not aware of that,” he said.
But the All Progressives Congress (APC),UK Chapter, has urged Igboho, to shelve the rally. The group, in a statement by its chairman, Phillip Idaewor, argued that the rally might be hijacked by hoodlums to unleash terror on Lagos residents.
“We are not opposed to the ideas of making Nigeria work better for the many and not the few,” the group said in a statement.
