Prominent Yoruba leader, Prof. Banji Akintoye has said nobody can stop the agitation for Yoruba self-determination.
In a statement on Sunday by the spokesman of the Ilana Omo Odua, Maxwell Adeleye, the leader said the agitation for Oduduwa Republic will be realised.
Akintoye, the leader of the group called on all Yoruba self-determination groups to begin to hold rallies in their localities every weekend.
He hailed the Yoruba Nimi Omo Kootu-Ojire and its founder, Titilayo Ojeleye, for the success of the rally held in Abeokuta on Saturday to drum up support for the actualisation of the Yoruba nation.
He said, “I want to advise the Nigerian State that the Yoruba self-determination struggle under my leadership shall continue to be peaceful and orderly.
“Therefore, threatening us, or attempting to subjugate our rights to self-determination and peaceful assembly are cowardly.
“We are marching on, and like valiant soldiers without a dint of fear. I make bold to put it to the Nigerian state that no one can stop an idea whose time has come.
“However, let me warn that all our people should note that each rally must be conscientiously peaceful, lawful and orderly.”
