Yoruba Nation: Prof. Akintoye makes one major request from UN


The leader of the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), Professor Emeritus Banji Akintoye, has asked the United Nations (UN) ‘to organize a referendum so that we can exercise our right to choose whether to continue to live with the people of Nigeria or not’.

Akintoye made this call on Tuesday, on a day separatists staged a protest at the United Nations (UN) headquarters in New York, US.

POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that agitators for the actualisation of ‘Yoruba nation’ on Tuesday protested at the UN office, expressing their paramount wish to split from Nigeria.

The protest was tagged ‘Million-Man Freedom March’.

“We are here to bring it before the world, the disaster that is developing in Nigeria, and to ask the United Nations as the voice of the world to intervene immediately, to stop the disaster that is developing, the killing of people, the mass killing of people, and the destruction of property and lives; and the introduction into the stream of AlQaeda, ISIS from outside Nigeria.

“We ask the United Nations to organize a referendum so that we can exercise our right to choose whether to continue to live with this people or not,” Akintoye said in a video seen by this reporter.
