BREAKING!!! Yoruba People Sets Date To Separate From Nigeria


The Yoruba people have set a date for their independence from Nigeria.

The movement for self-determination was brought to the fore again on Thursday, according to Weetalknaija, when some Yoruba groups on the platform of the Assembly of All Yoruba Groups Worldwide set aside June 12 as a referendum day for Yoruba on the move.

This was one of the outcomes of the group’s meeting in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, with the theme “The Paramountcy of Yoruba Unity in Tackling the Insecurity Crisis in Yorubaland.”

It was agreed that Yoruba self-determination is non-negotiable, according to a communique read by Otunba Deji Osibogun after the meeting.

The meeting noted numerous threats to Yoruba land’s security and urged Yorubas, especially the elites, to return to protect their homeland.

The meeting also mandated that every House of Assembly in the South West pass a resolution on Yorubaland’s state of insecurity.

Furthermore, the Assembly urged members of the Senate and House of Representatives who serve Yoruba constituencies to bring a motion on insecurity in Yorubaland within the next 90 days, on June 25.


The gathering also urged Yoruba organizations to coordinate relief supplies for Fulani victims.

This is because all Yoruba organisations have been tasked with making Unity of Intent their guiding principle, and a Yoruba Central Coordinating Council has been proposed.

Professor Banji Akintoye, who was portrayed by Dr. Tunde Hamzat, stressed that the call for Yoruba self-determination should not be misconstrued as secession in his remarks.

According to Akintoye, the Yoruba nation will be formed peacefully through the formation of consensus and mobilization of the people.

Ambassador Yemi Farounbi also spoke, emphasizing the importance of Yorubas being prepared to protect themselves against threats to their lives.


He challenged all Yoruba individuals and groups to use their intellect, assets, and knowledge to advance the Yoruba nation’s cause.

Femi Falana, a legal practitioner who called into the case, harped on the need for Yoruba land restructuring.


He urged Yorubas to take charge of their affairs and ensure the Yoruba nation’s development.
