We went on a protest in Lagos despite police threats

Yoruba Nation protesters say they went on a rally in Lagos State despite police threats to demonstrate that they are not cowards. Ilana Omo Oodua, the spokesperson for the umbrella group of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, Maxwell Adeleye, made this known.

He further stated that the agitators held the event to demonstrate to police officers, Nigerians, and the international community that they are peaceful demonstrators. Adeleye, on the other hand, expressed remorse for the death of a drink vendor during the event, stressing that police officers should be held accountable. The agitators’ spokesman, on the other hand, praised thousands of Yoruba people who rejected police intimidation and harassment to show sympathy with the movement for Self-Determination, stating “the struggle continues.”

“The fact that the rally took place in the face of police intimidation shows that Yoruba people are not cowards,” he stated. He questioned why, despite being “calm and orderly,” the agitators were dispersed by armed-to-teeth personnel of the Nigerian Police, Army, DSS, and Civil Defense Corps with teargas and live bullets. The spokesman for the agitators, however, hailed thousands of the Yoruba people who defied the Police intimidation and harassment to show solidarity with the agitation for Self-Determination, saying “the struggle continues.” “That the rally took place despite police intimidation symbolises that Yoruba people are not cowards,” he said.
