Police Arrest 25 Pro-yoruba Nation's Rally Organisers In Abeokuta by Trailblazer1(m): 8:54am On May 02
The allegation was contained in a statement issued on Saturday by the group's Media and Communications Secretary, Maxwell Adeleye.

Adeleye said eyewitness account had it that the Yoruba activists arrested, were conveyed in a Black Maria to the Headquarters of the Ogun State Police Command in Abeokuta.

He gave the names of some of those arrested as Wasiu Iyanda, Makanjuola Adigun, and 23 others.

The statement read, "This is to let the general public know that the centrally-controlled officers of the Nigerian Police have arrested 25 of our comrades as they were preparing for the Pro-Yoruba nation's rally scheduled to hold today in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

"The arrested Yoruba patriots were picked up in a commando-style in front of the Alake Of Egba's Palace in Abeokuta, the state capital, by over 200 Armed-To-Teeth Officers of the Nigerian Police.

"We want to put it on record that those arrested did not commit any crime. Instead, they are being vilified and harassed for exercising their rights to self-determination and peaceful assembly.

"We at Ilana Omo Oodua, renowned for peace and respect for the rules of law, are demanding the unconditional release of our members with immediate effect or else, there will be mass action against the Nigerian Police across Yoruba land commencing from tomorrow.

"We also call on the Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, to ensure that his state is not used to oppress the Yoruba people in any manner.

"We want the governor to remember that whatever happens today becomes history tomorrow."

Life na turn by turn.

You can't fault the vision of Biafrans, who have given a lot and still all in their capability to leave this contraption called Nigeria.

My people have an adage, that whenever you wake up is your morning.

Good morning Yoruba people.

It's at least unconstitutional according to Chapter 1 Part 1 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

2. (1) Nigeria is one indivisible and indissoluble sovereign state to be known by the name of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

That it's unconstitutional doesn't necessarily make it a crime.

It only means that it is not in the constitution.

Is bleeping your girlfriend constitutional?

Does it make you a criminal?

I don't think what you do with your girlfriend has anything to do with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but disturbing the peace is a crime, which is likely why the people were arrested. They can go sue for false arrest since false arrest is at least unconstitutional and illegal in Nigeria.

Yes people wrote it and it can be changed. So be a people and change it, but until you do change it, that is the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Sorry.

Why are you so tribalistic, or are you one of the Fulani agents?

Anybody who has been on nairaland for a while should have discovered that many of those monicas pretending to be Yoruba vs Igbo are impostors. Except you are actually one of them as I suspect.

An average Yoruba is in support of the Igbo. I believe an average Igbo who has lived in the Southwest before will also support the Yorubas, knowing that we are both friendly and compatible tribes, more so in these times when we need to form alliance and not allow the kind of division this person is promoting.

Those trying to sow the seed of discord should try harder, because they have failed this time.

Disturbing the peace and a peaceful protest do not correlate.

The government has made it clear that it is opposed to any form of protest. Hence, their arrest.

Protest is not a crime.
