Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, has declared June 12, Nigeria’s newly designated Democracy Day, as a day of protest for the Yoruba Nation.
The Yoruba activist said the agitators will hold ‘peaceful rallies’ across the southwest region on Saturday, June 12.
Igboho, who spoke through his spokesman, Olayomi Koiki on a live video program last night, called on southwest Governors to cooperate with the peaceful protesters on that day.
In his words: “Let us warn the Federal Government that if there is bloodshed this weekend, the international community is watching, if the military kills any Nigerian this weekend, it is going to be very hot.
“The Yoruba Nation rally will go ahead in every part of Yoruba land and the rest of the country where it will hold.
“Red alarm will begin on Friday. People should stock up food Items from Friday night.
“We are not backing down this weekend; we are ready to take back what belongs to us.”
He also enjoined agitators and supporters to ‘fast’ on Friday.
This is coming after the National Association of Nigerian Students [NANS] under the leadership of its National President, Comrade Sunday Asefon, declared June 12 as National Day of Peaceful Protest to call on the government to act decisively towards addressing insecurity.
