Sunday ‘Igboho’ Adeyemo, a Yoruba activist, has announced that he will participate in a nationwide protest on June 12.
Along with other agitators, the self-proclaimed Yoruba activist will stage a protest calling for Yorubaland to become a sovereign nation.
In an interview session on Wednesday, Mr Adeyemo, represented by his spokesman, Olayemi Koiki, called for the South-West governors’ support.
“Let us warn the federal government that if there is bloodshed this weekend, the international community will be watching,” he said. If the military kills any Nigerian this weekend, it will be a very hot weekend.”
“The Yoruba Nation rally will take place in every part of Yoruba land and the rest of the country,” he added.
“The red alert will go off on Friday. People should begin stockpiling food items on Friday night.
“We are not going to back down this weekend. We are prepared to reclaim what is rightfully ours.”
Meanwhile, the National Association of Nigerian Students and Civil Societies has urged the federal government to hold a protest on Saturday to press Mr Buhari’s regime to address insecurity, economic stability, unemployment, and other pressing issues in the country.
In addition, NANS, led by National President Comrade Sunday Asefon, declared June 12 as National Day of Peaceful Protest to urge the government to take decisive action to address insecurity.
