Trouble Looms As Yoruba Nation Agitators Picks Date For Mass Protest To Demand Separate Nation, Release Of Detained IPOB Leader
Yoruba Nation activists have announced plans to hold a major march in the United States on June 9, 2022.
In a leaflet, All Yoruba Self-Determination Groups and Media in Diaspora, a group advocating for the establishment of the Yoruba Republic, made this known.
According to the group, the rally will be held at the US Department of State, 2201 C St. NW, Washington DC 20520.
The rally is to call for the actualisation of Yoruba as a sovereign state and the release of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) by the Nigerian Government.
Kanu, a British-Nigerian political activist who advocates for the secession and independence of Biafra from Nigeria, has been detained since June 2021 by Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS), following his rendition to Nigeria from Kenya.
