Igboho, Ilana Omo Oodua, others are foolish—Aregbesola


As Yoruba secessionist groups rallied in Ekiti, one of the southwest states whose governors have disowned Yoruba nation agitation, Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola, celebrating his 64th birthday, had a word or two for them.

“Those leading and supporting agitation for the Yoruba Nation are foolish saying,” he said. “They should consider the consequences of war.”

Aregbesola said this at Zenabab Hotel, Ilesha, Osun State during the birthday celebration on Saturday.

He warned that agitators must consider the women, children, old people and those living with disabilities who are mostly affected.

“Anything that threatens and creates a problem for Nigeria may cause backwardness for our country for 50 years,” he added

According to him, Nigeria is the country that will liberate Africa from all oppressions, so the citizens must never consider a break-up as an alternative.

Ilana Omo Oodua has been at fore front of slicing off an Oodua Republic from Nigeria.

The secessionist group was founded by a historian, Prof Banji Akintoye, and foot soldiers include an ethnic jingoist Sunday Adeyemo and others.
