Yoruba nation activists have begun to converge at Ado Ekiti’s famed Fajuyi Park for a gathering organized by Ilana Omo Oodua, a socio-political group.
The arena is heavily guarded by security personnel, including police, the Department of State Services, and the Amotekun Corps.
An anonymous security worker stated they are at the venue “to avoid the collapse of law and order and guarantee that miscreants do not hijack the march.”
The agitators further stated that they are prepared to form a Yoruba nation outside of Nigeria.
“We are here in support of our agitation for Oodua nation,” Olusola Oyemakinde, one of the agitators and a member of the Oodua Action Movement, stated. Every one of us can witness Nigeria’s current status, in which there is no justice, lopsidedness, and insecurity are the norm.
“The Nigerian government has failed in its responsibilities to protect life. We can’t keep going in this direction. For us, the Yoruba nation is the answer.”
