WOMAN ANNOUNCES SUPPOSED YORUBA SECESSION FROM NIGERIA

Samuel Marshall

Without showing fear, a woman, one of the widows of late Chief MKO Abiola, Mrs. Modupe Onitiri-Abiola, who also is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Lagos, has, in an internet video made to the world, announced the supposed secession of the Yoruba tribe, from the Nigerian nation. The online video, through which she proclaimed the sovereignty of the “Democratic Republic of Yoruba” appeared soon after a group of Yoruba nation agitators invaded the Oyo State secretariat in Ibadan on Saturday 13th April 2024, dressed in military camouflage.

Wielding guns and machetes, the invaders also seized the State House of Assembly complex, and hoisted the Oodua national flag and banners that read “Occupy Yoruba Nation Now”.

Considering the act a treasonable felony, personnel of the western state security outfit called Amotekun, and the police settled the point with the invaders through a gun battle; and later launched a hunt for Mrs. Onitiri-Abiola.

Items recovered from the agitators included guns, live cartridges, and various articles with Yoruba inscriptions on them, designated for different offices of the believed new nation. The Oyo State Police Command paraded 29 of the activists, and thereafter, arraigned them in court.

Meanwhile, the State Police Commissioner, Mr. Adebola Hamzak has, with other security services, marshaled out motorized patrols, with intensive stop and search. Said he, in a press briefing, “If you see something, say something, and the police will immediately do something”.The online video, through which she proclaimed the sovereignty of the “Democratic Republic of Yoruba” appeared soon after a group of Yoruba nation agitators invaded the Oyo State secretariat in Ibadan on Saturday 13th April 2024, dressed in military camouflage.
