Embattled Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, says he has suspended the Yoruba Nation rally earlier scheduled to hold in Lagos on Saturday.
Yoruba Nation agitators had held rallies in different parts of the South-West with that of Lagos scheduled for Saturday.
But Igboho told BBC News Pidgin that the rally in Lagos has been suspended.
The activist spoke hours after his house in Ibadan, Oyo State was attacked early Thursday morning by gunmen who reportedly killed two persons and abducted his wife.
Igboho announced this after a statement by the umbrella body of Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua, declared that the Yoruba Nation rally slated for Lagos will hold on Saturday as scheduled.
The group’s leader, Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye, stated this in a statement made available to newsmen by his Communications Manager, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye.
“We want to confirm again that the Pro-Yoruba Nation rally scheduled to hold on Saturday, July 3rd, in Lagos will proceed as scheduled” the statement partly read.
