Yoruba Nation agitators have protested in the United Kingdom.
They were joined by UK Labour party members including, Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday as they stormed the streets of Liverpool, the United Kingdom.
The protesters are demanding for a separate nation.
The protest was held a few days ahead of a million man match scheduled to hold on Tuesday during the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, United States.
The agitators also demanded the release of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, who has been detained in Benin Republic since his arrest on July 19.
The protesters displayed various placards on which were written, “Self-determination is our right, not a crime, save us from Boko Haram”, “Stop the systematic genocide in Yorubaland”, “No Yoruba territory, no election in Nigeria 2023,” among other inscriptions.
The protest was held alongside another by some members of the UK Labour Party and others in an attempt to stop a controversial electronic arms fair from taking place.
One of the party leaders said, “I was born in Nigeria, it is a country which was formed by British imperialism after the slave trade, and today, we continue to suffer over there at the wrong hands of arms sold from this part of the world and we have some campaigners here who have banners saying, ‘Boko Haram are terrorists, not bandits’, ‘Buhari must go’, ’Nigeria is bleeding’.
