Yoruba Nation agitators, according to the police in Lagos, were detained at the state capital.
Benjamin Hundeyin, the command’s spokesperson, announced this on Sunday in a string of tweets.
According to Naija News, the police command intervened as the self-determination group was beginning to set up camp in preparation for launching a significant protest at Alausa.
The agitators, called out by Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba secessionist, were said to use the camp as a base to carry out the protest.
“Earlier today, a number of Yoruba Nation agitators commenced setting up camp at Alausa, planned to be used as a base to launch a massive protest. The camp was promptly dislodged while agitators were arrested. Investigation continues at SCID. Lawlessness WILL NOT be tolerated!” he wrote
In other news, the umbrella body for the emancipation and independence of the South West geopolitical zone has said that they will not be supporting the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The President of Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO) and leader of the Yoruba Self-Determination Movement (YSDM), Prof. Banji Akintoye made this known in a recent interview with select journalists.
Prof. Akintoye insists that the agitation for Yoruba Nation won’t stop and it would be achieved before the conduct of the 2023 general elections.
He, however, stated that the group was not against the ambition of the former governor as he has every right to contest the presidency but the objectives of the Yoruba nation’s cause are at variance with his ambition.
