Sunday Igboho has denied reports that he called off Lagos rally scheduled for Saturday.
Yoruba freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho has said reports that Lagos rally planned for Saturday has been dismissed is false.
This comes as the Yoruba nation agitator had vowed to shut down Lagos on July 3 in continuation of rallies for a sovereign Yoruba nation.
Igboho had conducted peaceful rallies in some states in the Southwest including Ondo, Osun and others to register their agitation for Oduduwa Republic.
In a statement on Wednesday by his spokesman, Olayomi Koiki, the secessionist said he would not back down on the planned protest, stressing that all Yoruba indigents are in support of the rally.
He urged the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Odumosu H. Olusegun to ensure that the protesters are protected.
The statement reads in part, ”This is to confirm to the general public that the Lagos State Mega Rally scheduled for this Saturday, 3rd of July 2021 will hold as planned.
“We are using this medium to ask the CP (Commissioner of Police) Lagos State to protect all the Yorubas coming into the state for this peaceful Mega Rally because of all the information about some individuals and groups of people trying to disrupt the peaceful rally.
“Chief Sunday Igboho cannot stop this rally because it’s all the Yorubas that want the rally to hold and the Yoruba Nation is bigger than him”.
