Co-organisers of the Yoruba Nation rally, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), have vowed to proceed with or without Sunday Igboho on the scheduled Saturday July 3 rally in Lagos.
Igboho had called off the march slated at Gani Fawehimi Freedom Park in Ojota on Thursday after Nigerian forces stormed his home in the Soka area Ibadan on Thursday but his partners have insisted they will proceed saying no amount of intimidation will make them to bow.
NEWSCASTARS.COM learnt that a source in the IOO, a body of self-determination Yoruba groups, told DAILY POST that the rally will go on as planned.
Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu warned that anyone caught participating will be dealt with within the ambits of the law.
However, the leadership of the IOO said;.
“What did you expect the Police to say? They are obeying the federal government. The Police told us not to hold the rally in Ogun and others but we did.
“It’s not compulsory that Sunday Igboho attends. I am telling you now that the Yoruba Nation rally will hold.
“The Ilana Omo Oodua under the leadership of Professor Akintoye already made it clear that we will come out,” he said.
