Five Arrested As Yoruba Nation Agitators Defy Abeokuta Rally Ban by GANDOOOKI: 2:50pm On May 01
There was tension in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Saturday, as security operatives arrested five agitators of the Yoruba nation who defied the police ban on a mass rally in the state capital.

Among those arrested was Zannu Williams, a young man who wore a traditional regalia.

The Police Command had barred the agitators from the mass rally, saying intelligence report showed that the organizers of the rally “are being sponsored by certain individuals outside the State and the country to destabilize Ogun State.”

The Spokesman of the Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement said the proponents of the Yoruba nation had held series of rallies in the different parts of the State, but the command would not perpetually stand by and watch public conducts of some citizens “hold others to the ransom and threaten the corporate existence of the country.”

He said: “The Command therefore, wishes to appeal to the leaders of this group to shelve the idea of staging another public rally in any part of the State for now, as such is capable of undermining the relative peace being enjoyed in the entire State.

“Consequently, the rally slated for Abeokuta on 1st May, 2021, is viewed by the Command as one too many in the State, and therefore not approved.
“Parents and guardians are hereby advised to warn their children and wards not to be involved in any of such gathering that may expose them to violence and consequently bring them on a collision course with the security agencies.”

But a pro – Yoruba nation group, Ilana Omo Oodua, declared that the agitators would not back off on the rally.

As early as 7am on Saturday, our correspondent observed that security operatives took over the streets of Abeokuta in order to stop the rally.
Police helicopter was also hovered over some areas in the state capital.

Our correspondent who visited the Ake palace, venue of the rally, observed joint security operatives manning strategic positions.

However, a procession of the Yoruba nation agitators, in defiance, passed the Ake palace street, despite the presence of heavy security men.
With solitary songs blaring from the speakers attached to the moving vehicles, the procession comprising young men and women, headed towards Adatan area of the metropolis.

A police source told our correspondent that no fewer than five defiant agitators have been arrested by the operatives.

“We have arrested about five persons including a woman,” a police source told Daily Trust.

Damn...

Too bad democracy ceased to exist in present day Nigeria. Only God knows how long we gonna endure in this hell.

I can't remember the last time I read anything good about Nigeria. Banditry, inflation & killings has become norm to us.

Huge respect to the brave protesters, be it for Biafra or Oduduwa republic, they're the heros. The damage done to the country is so massive that one Nigeria can only happen by divine intervention. It shall be well.

These are harmless protesters. Its so unfair to arrest them.
Everyone is tired of the hardship melted on Nigerians. Soon every region will join the rally, then our leaders will know what the people are passing through

Which one be Yoruba nation? Which one be oduduwa? Is it an online country? Can they raise an army to fight ?
Anyway only ten people came out to stage the walk for the oduduwa country and I have no other choice than to conclude that these guys are not serious people.
Please wake me up when you gather enough people and become serious. I have no time for jokes.

Kudos to Odua republic agitators. Don't let them dampen your spirit. Your only hope for exercising proudly your heritage is in a Yoruba nation. They will huff and puff but if you stand your ground you'll be free.
It is better to die for something worthwhile than die useless as a Nigerian.
