Activist Sunday Adeyemo [Igboho], said there is no going back on the Lagos Rally to drum support for the clamour for the Yoruba Nation despite the Department of State Security (DSS) raid on his residence and Lagos Police Commissioner, CP Hakeem Odumosu warning not to stage any rally in Lagos.
The police commissioner has directed his men to deal with anyone caught participating or facilitating the rally, according to the law.
In a live broadcast on Friday, Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, explained that the rally will go on as planned at Ojota, adding that Igboho will be back stronger.
“I have spoken to the organisers, nothing has changed so far. 3rd of July from exactly 9:00am in the morning, the whole arrangement and planning is going on.”
“I’ve spoken with the general Secretary of Ilana Omo Odua, George Akinola and also in the early hours before noon, I spoke with Banji Akintoye and he is working tirelessly for the release of those taken away.
“The rally in Lagos is going to be a peaceful rally, it is going to be a mega rally, do not be disturbed about what happened. So many development took place at Igboho’s house.
“We might get a form of video from Igboho about the Lagos rally, which might be released, we’ll be deciding that in the next 24 hours.”
He added: “He (Igboho) asked me to tell you all, not to be weighed down about what happened, he is standing with the Yoruba Nation agenda”.
