Yoruba country activists have started to show up at the famous Fajuyi Park in Ado Ekiti for a convention coordinated by socio-political gathering, Ilana Omo Oodua.
There is heavy presence of security operatives including police, Department of State Services and Amotekun Corps at the venue.
A security operative, who preferred anonymity, said they are at the venue “to prevent the breakdown of law and order and ensure miscreants do not hijack the rally”.
The agitators also expressed their readiness for Yoruba nation out of Nigeria.
One of the agitators and member of Oodua Action Movement, Olusola Oyemakinde, said, “We are here in support of our agitation for Oodua nation. Every one of us can see the state of Nigeria whereby there is no justice, there is lopsidedness and insecurity are the order of the day.
“The government of Nigeria has failed in its responsibility of securing lives. We cannot continue this way. Yoruba nation is the answer for us.”
