Breaking: Sunday Igboho insists on Lagos rally, blames police if rally turns violent


Olayomi Koiki, the spokesperson to Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho, has said that any violence that erupts from Saturday’s planned rally in Lagos state, should be pinned on the Nigerian police.

He said this in a Facebook broadcast on Friday morning.

Koiki reiterated that the Yoruba Nation Rally would hold on Saturday as planned, despite a police warning.

“On no account will any actual or rumoured activity, including the planned mega rally, be allowed to lock down the state or hinder the normal daily activities of the good people of Lagos State,” the Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, said at a media briefing held in Alausa, Ikeja, on Thursday.

But Igboho’s media aide noted that the rally would proceed with or without his boss, who had reportedly withdrawn himself from the rally.

He said, “I heard that the commissioner of police said no rally will hold, tell them to expect us. We will know who owns Lagos on Saturday between Yoruba people or Sanwo-Olu or police. We will all meet on Saturday during the rally.

“If everything will be ruined, let it be on Saturday. They have the choice of letting us have our protest peacefully. Police should be held responsible for any violence.

“Let us take all our grievances to Ojota at 9 am on Saturday.”
