Oodua Youths Warn FG

Barring any last minute aleration, Yoruba Nation lagos mega rally will hold as planned.



 

The Editor Nigeria reports that Yoruba Activist, Sunday Igboho, on Tuesday insisted that the planned Yoruba Nation March scheduled to hold in Lagos on July 3 remain on course.

The spokesman of the activist, Olayomi Koiki, in a video spotted online said the rally is scheduled to take off from Ojota Park, Lagos.



The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, while speaking on the rally said no group had approached the command in respect of a rally.

He said, “I’m not aware of anybody planning any rally anywhere in Lagos. Nobody has written to the Command to that effect. So, when we get to the bridge, we’ll cross it.”



Koiki while speaking with SaharaReporters said irrespective of the stance of the Lagos police or government, the rally will hold.

He further stated that Lagos belongs to the people and not to the Commissioner of Police, adding that no one has the right to stop the people from carrying out ‘a peaceful rally’.

He said, ”This is not #EndSARS neither is it June 12 rally, we are coming for a peaceful rally in Lagos State, no violence will be recorded and that rally will hold. 

“We have no business with the police and we are not coming to disrupt the peace of Lagos state. Let them pull whatever strings they can, by the time we get there, we will know what to do. We are simply demanding our own nation, so it is different from whatever rally was held on June 12 or during the #EndSARS protest.

“Tell them that, I, Olayomi Koiki, media aide to Chief Sunday Adeyemo (Igboho) said we will hold the July 3rd rally in Lagos State. We know what the police do to disperse peaceful protesters but we are not protesting, we are creating awareness. Yoruba Nation now, no retreat, no surrender.”

He said, ”This is not #EndSARS neither is it June 12 rally, we are coming for a peaceful rally in Lagos State, no violence will be recorded and that rally will hold. 

“We have no business with the police and we are not coming to disrupt the peace of Lagos state. Let them pull whatever strings they can, by the time we get there, we will know what to do. We are simply demanding our nation, so it is different from whatever rally was held on June 12 or during the #EndSARS protest.
