The Yoruba Nation Rally defies Buhari’s threats marches in Lagos.
Despite warnings from the Buhari regime, Yoruba Nation rally marches in Lagos.
Hundreds of demonstrators could be seen arriving at Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos, as early as 9:00 a.m., according to Peoples Gazette.
The location is strongly secured by armed officials from the Lagos police headquarters and the military, according to The Gazette.
Men, ladies, and youths dressed in secessionist regalia, banners, and placards continued to scream pro-secession mantras unafraid of the presence of security officers.
According to this online news source, police used water cannons to disperse the throng.
“Yoruba Nation, right now!
We can no longer stand by as our farmlands are invaded and our daughters are raped. “There will be no going back,” a female protester told The Gazette at the scene.
“There is no turning back for the Oduduwa Nation.”
“Igboho-Osha!!!” Another protester yelled.
iexclusive News Nigeria recalls that Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Igboho has been holding protests across southwestern states in recent weeks, but officials have warned him against staging a protest in Lagos.
His home in Ibadan was raided in the early hours of Thursday by state actors who killed two people and arrested 12 others.
Some properties were either demolished or transported as exhibitions.
