PHOTOS: Against Heavy security presence, thousands rally in Osogbo for Yoruba self determination agenda


Against heavy security presence both at the venue of the takeoff of the rally and in many jountions and strategic places of the Osunbstate capital, thousands of the youths under the aegis of Omo Oduduwa United stormed the streets of Osogbo to agitate for the Yoruba nation.


The security operatives eventually vacated the freedom park, the venue if the convergence for the rally.



There are some of the protesters who converged on November 27 bridge in the Africa area, Osogbo for the protest as many also joined from other areas as well as those that joined from other south west states.



Sunday Adeyemo popularly called GBOHO and his entourages also graced the rally.


They marched from the November 27 bridge through Ogo-Oluwa, Aregbe junction, Fakunle, Ola-Iya and Odi Olowo areas.


The protesters carried placards, banners chanting secession songs and distributing handbills to people along the streets.


The protest maintained that agitations for self determination is a fundamental rights.


They are heading to Nelson Mandela Freedom Park, Old Garage.












The charters of the United Nations, Africa Union and ECOWAS, of which Nigeria is a member, give the people the right to self determination and to have a voice on how they would like to be governed.

Acting within the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which guarantees freedom of expression and association, a self-determination rally is therefore not a crime.

Akintoye Writes South West Govs, says Terrorists Have Encircled Yoruba Land, Urges People to Wake Up

Akintoye Writes South West Govs, says Terrorists Have Encircled Yoruba Land, Urges People to Wake Up

Says "New Covid-19 Mid-night Curfew Is An Attempt to Import Terrorists Into Yoruba Land"



Advises RCCG, Winners Chapel, MFM, Synagogue, Deeper Life, Ibadan and Lagos Central Mosques to beef up security around their premises 



Wednesday 12th May, 2021




Renowned Historian and Second Republic Member of the Senate, Prof. Banji Akintoye has raised an alarm, alleging that terrorists have invaded and encircled the South West Geo-political zone of Nigeria.


In a letter personally written by him to all South West Governors, the leader of the apex Yoruba Self-Determination Group, Ilana Omo Oodua, urged the leaders to be vigilant and ensure that their fatherland is not captured by foreign invaders.


Akintoye, according to a statement made available to Newsmen on Wednesday by his Communications Manager, Maxwell Adeleye, declared that the new midnight curfew announced by the Nigerian Government to curtail the spread of Covid-19 in Nigeria looks suspicious with clandestine motives.


While urging Yoruba people, especially the younger generations to wake up and be extra-vigilant, Akintoye alleged that the previous Covid-19 lockdown from March to May 2020 was used to import terrorists from the North to the Southern parts of Nigeria, especially, to the south-west, stressing that "people must therefore be very careful and observant now"


He advised some top religion centres in South West such as The Redeemed Christians Church of God (RCCG) Redemption Camp, Winners Chapel's Faith Terbanacle, Deeper Life Bible Church's Camp, Mountain of Fire's Camp, Synagogue Church of All Nations's Headquarters and the prestigious Central Mosque buildings in Lagos and Ibadan, to beef-up security around their premises.


The lengthy statement, as written by Akintoye, read in parts:


"This is an alert from Ilana Omo Oodua to the Yoruba people at home and in the Diaspora. The situation that has developed in Nigeria in recent days calls for the uttermost vigilance of the Yoruba nation, and every Yoruba man, woman, and child.


"There is danger that if we don't mount that high level of vigilance today, very serious pains can be inflicted upon us as a nation and on countless numbers of citizens of our nation. 


"A few days ago, precisely, Saturday, the 8th of May, I sent a very desperate letter to the six Governors of the Yoruba Southwest. The letter reads as follows:


"Your Excellencies, the Governors of the Yoruba Southwest. This is a very desperate message from me to the State Governors of our Yorubaland in the face of the impending escalation of the ongoing invasion of our homeland. A combination of Fulani terrorists, Boko Haram and ISIS have occupied Niger State which is immediately north of Yorubaland, thereby providing for themselves very easy access into Yorubaland through the Yoruba parts of Kwara and Kogi States. 


"Then, recently, the US has issued a statement that ISIS has infiltrated Southern Nigeria from the sea-- meaning that the coast of Lagos, Ogun and Ondo States have been infiltrated.


"Our situation has thus become desperate and requires desperate actions from our State Governors. I feel obliged to devote much attention to the study of our Yoruba nation's vicissitudes in these terrible times, and from such studies, I am hereby raising an informed alarm to the Governors of our States. I humbly and passionately urge our Governors to come together to give the needed response to the danger that threatens to engulf our Yorubaland in, most probably, the next few days. 


"It is very well known that the signature action of these foreign terrorist organisations is to first destroy prominent assets of the society that they attack. That could mean that major public and private buildings in Lagos and Ibadan, particularly the hugely symbolic Cocoa House in Ibadan, would be their immediate targets. 


"By the grace of God, we will ultimately expel them from our homeland, but by then, very many valuable assets of our nation might have been wrecked. This is something that we can and must prevent by preempting them with our own massive defensive measures. 


"I wish our Governors God's wisdom and strength as they rise together to do the desperately needful now. I trust you all to make the best decision, but I respectfully urge that you also borrow a leaf from what Governor Ortom has done in his Benue State. 


"With my greatest regards. Prof Banji Akintoye."


"That was last Saturday. Now, in the past 24 hrs, that is, since late Monday, May 10, 2021, more troubling developments have occurred. First, the Secretary to the Nigerian Federal Government, Boss Mustapha, went on air and announced a number of Federal Government measures which were said to be made necessary by COVID 19. The measures included Nigerian-wide curfews, a limit of the congregation of persons to 50, closing down of bars and night clubs, among others. 


"However, while members of the Nigerian public were still pondering the Federal Government's announcement, another highly placed official of the same Government, Dr Sani Aliyu, Coordinator of the National Presidential Task Force on COVID 19, came out with a statement that the announcement a night before on lockdown, curfew, and public gathering were fake. He concluded that the public should ignore them.


"We urge the Yoruba people to be aware of what may be happening now. We ask Yoruba people to remember that when the Federal Government announced a lockdown in March 2020, the lockdown was converted to a sinister opportunity to truck countless loads of Fulani terrorists and others to the South, especially to the Yoruba Southwest. We Yoruba people must defend our homeland, our towns, cities, villages, farmlands and our people no matter what anybody else may be doing. 


"Happily, most Yoruba people are no longer in doubt about the danger that confronts their nation in Nigeria, but we need now is to mobilize ourselves in defence of our homeland . The Yoruba people are grateful to the Yoruba youths for the way they have woken up to resist the invasion of Yorubaland by terrorist bandits. 


"The Yoruba youths must take particular cognizance of the following facts: 


"That terrorists have taken over Niger State: That Niger State is the immediate Northern neighbour of Yorubaland; that terrorists now command easy access into Yoruba land through the Yoruba parts of Kwara and Kogi States; a powerful nation, the United States of America, has issued an alert informing Nigeria and the world that ISIS, probably in alliance with other terrorist groups, has infiltrated the Southern parts of Nigeria from the sea; That the Nigerian Federal Government has not responded in any way to all these dangerous developments, which means that we must not wait for any Federal Government to defend us. 


"We Yoruba people must also remember in particular that all past efforts by terrorists in Nigeria have always had special plans for Yorubaland because, as everybody knows, Yorubaland is the home of the richest non-petroleum resources in Nigeria. 


"All these call for a new and higher level of response and vigilance by the Yoruba people. Our youths have been holding mega rallies across cities and that is a very welcome development, but our youths must now respond at a much higher level than mega rallies. They must organise themselves urgently to protect our roads, especially the roads that lead into our homeland. They must ensure that the influx of terrorists and arms into our land definitively stops. 


"Owners and custodians of significant edifices in Yorubaland are strongly advised now to establish formidable security for their edifices. These include bridges, important public and private buildings, churches and such eminent Church estates as the Redeem, Winners, Deeper Life, Mountain of Fire Church camps and the unique Synagogue building of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, and even our most prestigious Central Mosque buildings in Lagos, Ibadan and our other cities. 


"We must remember that when these terrorists broke into Mali Republic some years ago they destroyed the revered mosque of the ancient Sankore University in Timbuktu, the greatest Islamic monument in West Africa. To them, whatever does not qualify as fundamentalist or jihadist deserves to be destroyed.


"The Yoruba people trust their youths because the youths have done a lot of great things in recent times. We know they can do it, and we expect them to do their duty to their nation in these desperate times. Do this for your nation now to secure our nation and carve for yourself an honourable place in history.


"Yoruba youths must also make it clear to the world that NOW is the last and final battle of the Yoruba people against the destructive elements of Nigeria on the Yoruba nation", the statement concluded.

MY INDEPENDENT FINDINGS ABOUT THE FULANIS/HAUSAS THAT CAME TO OKITIPUPA - Odusola

MY INDEPENDENT FINDINGS ABOUT THE FULANIS/HAUSAS THAT CAME TO OKITIPUPA - Odusola

I have carried out my independent findings and I find the following as facts and true;


1. That behind the Army Barracks, Hausas and fulanis numbering over 3,000 are occupying the Army Barracks land and built houses there where the live.


2. That the fulanis/Hausas that we saw 4days ago who were arrested and transported to Akure by Amotekun, didn't come that day, but have been coming in batches day before that day.


3. That as at yesterday, another set came and are already in the army barracks.


4. That the total number of vehicle that brought them was 31. (One should wonder how come no security agency stopped them on their way)


5. That when they got to okitipupa, they headed straight to the Army Barracks, where they are expected to stay for reason best known to those who sent them.


6. That the soldiers at the barracks refused to allow them entry. But later a signal came from above, which directed the C. O of d barracks to allow them into the barracks.


7. That the time it took for the C. O to receive the tignal caused the said fulanis/Hausas to stay a long time at the gate of the barracks, and this gave their presence out to people and the  chairman of local government and Amotekun were alerted.


8. By the time the C. O told them to enter into d barracks, the Amotekun and Local government chairman were already there to question whatever thing was happening there.


9. The soldiers allowed the chairman to question the said strangers and during the interview, they said they belong to a security network and are sent to the barracks to receive training.


10. The chairman asked them if they are soldiers and how come they are to be trained by soldiers when they are not security agents. (They could not answer d questions)


11. Apart from saying that they are members of an unknown security network, they have no other reasonable reason for coming into okitipupa in that large number.


12. As a matter of fact, they are about 1,000 in number and if they are added to the existing numbers in d Army barracks bush, we will be having about 4,000 fulanis/Hausas in okitipupa. (That figure is enough to run down the entire southern senatorial district and the entire southwest of Nigeria)


My conclusion:


The federal government under Major General Muhammadu  Buhari surely has a mission. As it is, the southwest of Nigeria has been surrounded. You may choose not to believe me, but I'm sure of what I am saying.


Amotekun is not enough, we need more volunteer security groups like Eastern security network (ESN). LET'S EVERYBODY START LOOKING FOR GUNS. We must also be watchful, lest we are caught unaware.


As for me, I know what to do when the time comes.


This Government is a terrorist Government.

Ondo Returns Suspected FULANI Invaders



At least, forty-two persons from the northern part of the country who arrived Ondo State with unknown mission have been returned to their states of origin.


According to the daily Post report, the suspected invaders, who were rescued from being lynched at Okitipupa, Ondo state, Nigeria by the Amotekun Corps, were later rounded up and profiled by the security agency.


While parading them in Akure, the commander of the Amotekun corps, Adetunji Adeleye claimed that they came for a private firm security training.

"The explanation provided by the men and women was not satisfactory to the state of government.


“These men and women were first sighted in Okitipupa local government area of Ondo state on Thursday where their arrival created unnecessary tension and apprehension among many residents of the community.


“The people who came from Jigawa and Kano states were said to have come for a mission unknown to government.”


Also speaking on the situation, Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, said “The situation would have degenerated to the extent of lynching and jungle justice. It was almost getting to that point when they were seen in a suspicious manner in Okitipupa but the governor had to rise up to the occasion to ensure that they were given to adequate protection so that jungle justice had to be avoided. That was one of the key points that was achieved in the last 72 hours. It was a very frightening situation.


Ordinarily looking at the insecurity situation in the country, some of this persons would have been molested if not killed but that is not what we want. Whatever is worth doing must be well done and we ensured as a government that they were well protected and taken care of until they were moved out of that danger zone to Akure.”


The suspected invaders were said to have been contacted by their alleged sponsors for a special training.


Meanwhile, they have been escorted by the officers of the Amotekun Corps to the state boundary.

I have carried out my independent findings and I find the following as facts and true;


1. That behind the Army Barracks, Hausas and fulanis numbering over 3,000 are occupying the Army Barracks land and built houses there where the live.


2. That the fulanis/Hausas that we saw 4days ago who were arrested and transported to Akure by Amotekun, didn't come that day, but have been coming in batches day before that day.

ODUDUWA REPUBLIC: NO GOING BACK ON ABEOKUTA RALLY - Ilana Omo Oodua

ODUDUWA REPUBLIC: NO GOING BACK ON ABEOKUTA RALLY - Ilana Omo Oodua

Invites Amnesty International, NUJ, HURIWA, NAWOJ, IPC, SERAP, CDHR, NBA, others to observe rally


Says "Any Attempt to Stop Our Peaceful Assembly Shall Be Challenged Logically, Legally and Internationally"


Friday 30th April, 2021



The apex body of Yoruba Self-Determination Groups, Ilana Omo Oodua, has described the threat by the Ogun State Police Command of the Nigerian Police Force to stop the Pro-Yoruba Nation's rally being planned by the organisation tomorrow in Abeokuta, the State capital as a declaration of war against the constitutional rights of the Yoruba people for self-determination, peaceful assembly and speech, warning that any attempt to stop the rally shall be challenged legally, logically and Internationally.


Promising to be peaceful, lawful and make decorum its watchword throughout the duration of rally tomorrow, the Group, being led by a second republic member of the senate and renowned Professor of History, Banji Akintoye, called on organisations such as the Amnesty International (AI), Human Rights Writers Association (HURIWA), Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Committee for the Defense of Human Rights (CDHR), International Press Council (IPC), Socio - Economic Rights And Accountability Project (SERAP) and all local and international media organisations to attend the rally as observers.


Reacting through a statement signed by its Media and Communications Secretary, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, Ilana Omo Oodua described the claims by the Ogun State Police Spokesperson, Mr. Abimbola Oyeyemi, that previous rallies organised by the organisation were violent, as an absolute mendacity, and a fallacious attempt to paint the organisation in a bad light.


"We read with total disbelief, a statement credited to the Ogun State Police Command that our Pro-Yoruba nation Nation's rally scheduled to hold in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital tomorrow will not be allowed to hold. We want to believe the statement of the police is a joke. However, if the Police was serious about the threat, we want to let the the authorities in Ogun State know that our rally will go ahead as scheduled because the police have no power under the law to deny us of our rights to self-determination and peaceful assembly.


"We at Ilana Omo Oodua considers the statement as a declaration of war against our rights to self-determination, peaceful assembly and speech as guaranteed by the United Nations and African Union Charters on Human Rights which Nigeria is a signatory to.


"We want to assure the police that we shall hold our demonstration very peacefully, lawfully and orderly tomorrow, and we warn that any attempt to stop the rally shall be challenged legally, logically and Internationally.


"Morealso, we say, for the sake of those who may have been cajoled by the claims of the Police that previous Pro-Yoruba Nation's rallies in Ogun State were violent and disturbed the peace of the state, that Ilana Omo Oodua, under the leadership of Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye, has never been violent in its approach, and the facts are out there already.


"To assure the police that we are indeed peaceful, and we shall continue to be peaceful, lawful and orderly, we hereby use this opportunity to invite organisations such as the Amnesty International (AI), Human Rights Writers Association (HURIWA), Nigerian Bar ASSOCIATION, Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Committee for the Defense of Human Rights (CDHR), International Press Council, Socio - Economic Rights And Accountability Project (SERAP), all local and international media organisations to attend the rally tomorrow as observers", the statement, concluded.

"We want to assure the police that we shall hold our demonstration very peacefully, lawfully and orderly tomorrow, and we warn that any attempt to stop the rally shall be challenged legally, logically and Internationally.


"Morealso, we say, for the sake of those who may have been cajoled by the claims of the Police that previous Pro-Yoruba Nation's rallies in Ogun State were violent and disturbed the peace of the state, that Ilana Omo Oodua, under the leadership of Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye, has never been violent in its approach, and the facts are out there already.


"To assure the police that we are indeed peaceful, and we shall continue to be peaceful, lawful and orderly, we hereby use this opportunity to invite organisations such as the Amnesty International (AI), Human Rights Writers Association (HURIWA), Nigerian Bar ASSOCIATION, Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Committee for the Defense of Human Rights (CDHR), International Press Council, Socio - Economic Rights And Accountability Project (SERAP), all local and international media organisations to attend the rally tomorrow as observers", the statement, concluded.

JUNE 12'S FAILED REFERENDUM: YORUBA PEOPLE, NOW THAT YOU ARE WINNING, DO NOT FALL FOR THE NEW GIMICKS OF FULANI AGENTS

JUNE 12'S FAILED REFERENDUM: YORUBA PEOPLE, NOW THAT YOU ARE WINNING, DO NOT FALL FOR THE NEW GIMICKS OF FULANI AGENTS


We are informing you now that the one Nigeria UNITARIST team that want to embarrass the Yoruba people through a fraudulent referendum have changed their strategy from organising a REFERENDUM on JUNE 12 to organising an OPINION POLL after people's condemnation of their AGENDA to sell out the Yoruba Nation. 


Now, Yoruba people need to show they are not FOOLS. We need to show how intellectually sophisticated we are. We must not fall for their GIMICKS. We must not be cajoled nor deceived.


A voting website designed and being promoted by the same people that have declared to the world that their preferred option is ONE NIGERIA via RESTRUCTURING cannot be TRUSTED. Voting on that website is a waste of time. Voting on that website is a security risk. Do not supply your data to Fulani Agents within Yoruba land. Do not supply your information to the business agents of the Caliphate. Do not register under any guise in their fraudulent website - yorubadecides.com- to participate in any voting on JUNE 12.


Both the failed plan for a Referendum and new option of an Opinion Poll were designed to achieve the same result to be declared inside a hall on JUNE 12 before the WORLD PRESS - THAT YORUBA PEOPLE PREFER ONE NIGERIA VIA RESTRUCTURING, and not YORUBA NATION. 


That's the result they would be declaring in the evening of JUNE 12 by 5pm in IBADAN, OYO STATE (unless they change venue after this unraveling of their plots).


Soon, the names of the characters behind the attempt to fraudulently sell out Yoruba people's agitation for a New NATION will be published across all digital media platforms for the world to see for record and posterity. They are warned now to desist from their evil plans or have history and posterity to be unkind to them.



PLEASE SHARE EVERYWHERE TO GET TO EVERY YORUBA PEOPLE. DON'T FALL FOR THE GIMICKS OF CALIPHATE AGENTS.

Oduduwa Republic: Shooting as army besiege Sunday IGBOHO's House

Oduduwa Republic: Shooting as army besiege Sunday IGBOHO's House


The house of a popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo well known as Sunday Igboho, was on Monday surrounded by Nigerian soldiers who attempted to arrest him.

This was separately reported by Olayomi Koiki the Media Aide to the Yoruba rights activist and Awikonko, a Yoruba poet.  Both said there were sporadic shootings around the Soka, the Ibadan residence of Igboho, as some heavily armed gunmen in Nigerian army uniform stormed the area.

In a viral video shared on the Facebook, Koiki claimed that the residence was besieged by men of the Nigeria Army with the aim of arresting the activist.


It would be recalled that the security agents had in February allegedly attempted to arrest Igboho along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway but failed.

According to the viral video, Koiki said, “There is a situation right now where the Federal Government of Nigeria tried to invade our residence. We are telling the world that the war that the Federal Government is waiting for might start today.

“The war that the Federal Government think they are expecting from the Yoruba people; let’s tell the whole world. As I speak to you, there is an ongoing incident but we are more than capable.

According to Premium Times, gunshots could be heard intermittently in the background as Mr Koiki spoke. He claimed soldiers were doing the shooting but that the online newspaper could not independently confirmed the shooting.

The medium also claimed that It is also unclear at this time if soldiers indeed swooped on the property located in the Soka area of Ibadan. 


Oyo state police spokesperson, Adewale Osifeso, did not respond to calls and text messages seeking to clarify Mr Igboho’s claim.

The known telephone number of Nigerian Army spokesperson, Mohammed Yerima, did not connect as this reporter dialled it multiple times Monday morning.


“By tomorrow morning, I am sure the government would come with false press statements, that it was a set of unknown soldiers, that was the same tactic they used to attack Fela’s mother. They equally used it during #EndSARS.

“They brought us a letter sometimes ago but we rejected them because the letter was what they used to kill Dele Giwa. We have chosen to be peaceful only for them to keep looking for our trouble which we won’t hesitate to give to them.” Koiki said.

OVER 1,000 YORÙBÁ WOMEN IN DIASPORA VISIT OONI, INSIST ON YORÙBÁ NATION

OVER 1,000 YORÙBÁ WOMEN IN DIASPORA VISIT OONI, INSIST ON YORÙBÁ NATION


Not less than 1,000 Yoruba Women from Uruguay, Argentina, Mexico, United Kingdom, Papua Guinea, Venezuela, Spain, France, and other countries on Wednesday visited the Ooni of Ile – Ife, His Imperial Majesty Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II in his Palace to express themselves on the need for the Yoruba Nation.


The Ooni in his response maintained that “Our Struggle for Self-Determination Can not materialise without Women’s Support.”


As one of the strongest pillar of the agitation, Prof. Banji Akintoye also said that the visit symbolises a declaration showing the departure of Yoruba land from Nigeria.


The Women, under the agies of Obinrin Oodua Agbaye, dressed with traditional ritual attires, consisting of white body wrappers and beads, all from the diaspora, numbering about 1,000, stormed the palace of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye – Ogunwusi on sunday 11th April, 2021, demanding that it is either self-determination or nothing for the Yoruba Nation.


Led by their worldwide Leader, Princess Yeye Simisade Kuku-Onayemi and their Secretary-General, Dr. Owowunmi Babalola-Okocha, the women said the gods in Yoruba Land have mandated them to commence spiritual measures that will lead to the prompt actualisation of Yoruba Nation without 


 *Apr 14, 2021* 

Omowumi, a resident of the United States, flanked by other Yoruba women from 37 countries such as Canada, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, United Kingdom, Paupa Guinea, Venezuela, Spain, France, amongst others, said the gods mandated them to conduct some spiritual measures in the palaces of Ooni of Ife, Alaafin of Oyo, Osemawe of Ondo, Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Obaro of Kabba, Ayangburen of Ikorodu, Oloffa of Offa and Awujale of Ijebu Land respectively.


The women added that the outcome of the spiritual meansures which cannot be discussed in public, shall unravel many things that will help towards the peaceful and prompt actualisation of Yoruba Nation.


“All of us that you are seeing here today are top-notch professionals. We have medical doctors, lawyers, chartered accountants, engineers, development experts, journalists, academic dons, top bankers and entrepreneurs among us. The majority of us are working at blue-ship public and private organisations,” Simisade Kuku-Onayemi, the worldwide leader of the women, declared.


She said they are contented with what they have but they are not happy with the situation of things in their fatherland hence their coming out to salvage their land in a Yoruba way.


Corroborating her leader, Omowumi Babalola- Okocha said “upon consultations, we were mandated by gods to visit the palaces of Ooni of Ife, Alaafin of Oyo, Osemawe of Ondo, Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Ayangburen of Ikorodu, Oloffa of Offa, Obaro of Kabba and Awujale of Ijebu Land to carry our some spiritual measures that we cannot mention details in public hence our visit to the Oduduwa Source.


“When we are done with our consultations and prayers, the people of Yoruba Nation shall be surprised at the rate by which the Yoruba Nation shall come into reality without any bloodshed. It shall be amazing and the world shall be shocked,” Omowumi declared.


In his brief remarks, Yoruba Leader and Alana of Ilana Omo Oodua, Emeritus Professor Banji Akintoye, who led the women to Ooni’s palace, described the action of the women as a powerful declaration showing the departure of Yoruba land from Nigeria.


The 86-year-old member of the second republic Senate said “our women who gave birth to us have spoken. They have declared and Heaven has heard. What they have started is a powerful declaration showing the departure of the Yoruba Nation from Nigeria.


“It will be amazing and shocking by the time the declaration is made. Yoruba Nation shall be birthed and with the support of our women, our freedom day is nearer,” Akintoye said.


Ooni of Ife in his response to the development, highlighted the importance of women in Yoruba’s strive for freedom, stating that the new twist to the agitation for self-determination is that women are now involved which makes him very glad.


“Whatever you are doing that women are not involved cannot materialise. We are going no where if our women are not carried along and get involved. If you are married, and your wife is not happy with you, it is not going to work well with you unless the woman is not fighting you with sincerity.


“Women are not timid, they are warriors. From the Holy Bible, we read how Deborah fought for her people and conquered. Moremi fought and delivered the people of Ancient Ife from the Igbomekun who were our deadly adversaries. Therefore, women are key to our struggle for self-determination and we must carry them along, going forward.


“We will support our women and we are happy they are taking up the battle and picking up the guanlets. Again, I want to say very expressly that If we fail to have the support of our women folks, we are going nowhere. Therefore, I welcome you to the source and I wish you well in your visit to other palaces in Yoruba Nation”, Ooni declared.


Other dignitaries at the palace during the visit included the National Chairman of Ilana Omo Oodua, Professor Wale Adeniran, University Don, Akin Adejuwon, amongst others.

NIGERIA: FULANI EMASCULATION NOW COMPLETE

NIGERIA: FULANI EMASCULATION NOW COMPLETE

 *Doubting Thomas's now Shamed!
 *But we shall rise and Triumph Willy Nilly



The strategy is fool proof yet every project invites its own risks. The master strategist is a master risk evaluator but these people are not. It is clear that those who conceived this project, designed its key elements and planned its implementation somehow failed to design risk management into the mix. This is my evaluation of the Project design and plans to hand over Nigeria to Fulani Nations of Africa.

To dominate a people, seize their wealth and enslave them, take full control of political power, get all arms under your control, deny all else of access to any form of weapons, take control of major income organs, deny all else of access to funds. Finally move in surreptitiously and take over physical space. This is what has been going on since 2015.


 *PHASE 1

FULANI TAKE OVER ALL 3 ORGANS OF GOVERNMENT


Today, all three arms of Government; Executive, Legislative and Judicial have been appropriated by the Fulani Nation.

President, Chief of Staff, Senate president, Chief Justice of the Federation, Deputy Speaker House of representatives.  It has always been said that he who controls political power controls everything in the Republic. That is what the Fulani have done.


 *PHASE 2

FULANI TAKES OVER ALL ARMS BEARING ORGANS OF SECURITY

Next, they moved to put all arms under Fulani control. Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Navy Staff, Inspector General of police, Director general of Department of State Security (DSS), National Security Adviser, (NSA), Minister of Defense, Commander of NSCDC, Chairman of NDLEA, all Intelligence services military and civilian. Director NIA, Director Military Intelligence, Director Naval Intelligence, Director Air Force Intelligence, Immigration, Prisons and so on. These are the organs licensed to bear arms. And just like Aristotle observed centuries ago: “Those who have command of the arms in a Country are masters of the State, and have it in their power to make what revolutions they please.”


 *PHASE 3

NIGERIANS EXCEPT FULANI HEERDSMEN ORDERED TO SURRENDER ARMS

Still not fully comfortable with the capacity of other Nigerians to offer resistance, in February 2018, Nigeria Police Force which feigned ignorance of the uAK47 bearing Fulani terrorists and would not challenge them suddenly announced, through Police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, plans by the Inspector General of Police to order surrender of both licensed and unlicensed guns from the citizens of Nigeria within 21 days. This was targeted at Vigilante groups, Neighborhood watches and people who obtained licensed guns for personal protection. Evidently, the Fulani herdsmen were exempted from this order as they openly and brazenly carried AK47 weapons in full view of the Police unchallenged. Again, that Philosopher, Aristotle saw this before our time:

“Both Oligarch and tyrant mistrust the people and therefore deprive them of their arms.”


 *PHASE 4

TAKE OVER ALL FUNDS AND DEPRIVE OTHERS OF ACCESS TO MONEY.

The four highest revenue earners of Government were put in the hands of Fulani Muslims from the North.  NNPC accounts for 76% of federal revenue, 40% of overall gross Domestic Product and 98% of export earnings is put under Mele Kyari, Fulani from Borno. Federal Inland Revenue Service which generated, at a time, 5.3 trillion Naira under Babatunde Fowler, a Yoruba, was taken and handed over to Mohammed Nami in 2019, also Muslim from the North. Government was patient enough for Fowler to introduce the template and blueprint of the successful Lagos tax initiative. In addition, Fowler brought all the Tax payer register, their key information, their business secrets and customers to the Federal umbrella, thinking perhaps he would be there in forever.  The Nigeria Ports Authority whose revenue in 2017 was about 1 trillion Naira and one of the highest 4 is domesticated under a young lady, Hadiza Bala Usman, also Muslim Fulani. The Nigeria Customs Service, yielded a revenue of 1.5 trillion naira was also given to Rtd. Col. Hameed Ali, Muslim Fulani. But that is not all. The big spenders are also Fulani controlled: 

Defense, Finance, Education, Justice, FCT, Agriculture, Police Affairs, Aviation, Communication, Power, Water Resources, and Humanitarian Affairs.

Following key federal agencies too: EFCC, ICPC, NFIU, NNPC, PTDF, DPR, PPRA, PEF, NPA, NIMASA, NDIC, SEC, NAICOM, FMBN, FHA, NHIS, NPHDA, UBEC, TETFUND, SMEDAN, NYSC, BOA, DBN, BPE, NTA, NEDC, FERMA, PENCOM, NITDA, NCC, NEMA, FAAN, NAMA, NIMET, NIRSAL, NIMC and Sovereign Wealth Fund.


 *PHASE 5

PHYSICAL OCCUPATION: OKADA LOCUSTS FROM THE NORTH

Importation of foreign Fulani into Southern and Middle Belt regions started rather surreptitiously. Thousands of Fulani youth, scrawny looking, scantily clothed invaded most State Capitals of the South and Middle belt, starting from Lagos. They came in trailers, loaded with brand new motorcycles called “Okada.” Some observant people wondered aloud, how they got these shiny brand-new motorbikes, who paid for them, who sent them down South and who received, camped, housed and fed them. They asked “Is this not be part of a grand Boko Haram agenda?” 

Not a few suspected them as injected sleeper cells in our urban areas, ready and programmed to press their weapons into action to cause pandemonium, injure and kill in order to dominate and take over local space. Our Governors went about their activities in politics and stealing without distraction, yet the number of these invading troops kept swelling. 


 *PHASE 6

PHYSICAL OCCUPATION: INJECTION INTO FOREST RESERVES

Under the pretext of Cow herding, they started full scale occupation of forest reserves, importing their family from across all Fulani Nations of West Africa, building their signature straw huts all around and constructing their traditional organs of administration. They brought their wives, their children and their armory of AK47 and ammunition. Still Governors grumbled but wanted a second term and so, feigned ignorance. 


GOOD STRATEGY, POOR TACTICS.

Those who conceived and implemented this ‘Take-Over’ strategy failed to take risk management into their project plan. They injected these peasants, equipped them with guns and forgot to sustain them with regular allowances. So, prematurely and before full implementation of mass space occupation, these warriors poured into highways, started to rob passengers for survival before graduating to kidnapping. Now they found this more lucrative than any allowance thus transformed into autonomous agents. They had now acquired enormous power, been introduced to lucrative human trade and become blackmail entrepreneurs. Some with the power of their guns also moved to seize ancestral land and since ‘body no be wood,’ added raping of farmers wives and daughters.


Finally people came alive, started to pay attention and now complained. Abuja ignored them, local Political leaders including Governors and legislators stayed mute, traditional rulers cringed and froze up, but some socio-political leaders raised alarms. 


 The Presidency, finally, through a Yoruba minion, Femi Adesina warned: “Ancestral attachment? You can only have ancestral attachment when you are alive. If you are dead, how does the attachment matter?”  He warned farmers to give up their homeland to stay alive. Vanguard of July 15 2018 reported this along with many other newspapers.


TOO LITTLE TOO LATE.

You have to admire Chinua Achebe for his creative metaphors even when you don’t, his sentiments.  Achebe captured our carelessness thus:

“People say that if you find water rising up to your ankle, that is the time to do something about it, not when it is around your neck.”


Well, the water had gone up beyond our neck before some of our leaders woke up to do something, it had gone up to our nostrils. I don’t know where it is now as we appear to be drowning.


OF 1,123 FULANI CELLS INSERTED DEEP INTO YORUBA FORESTS

On May 25 2019, Yoruba Council of Elders sounded a loud, disturbing and chilling beagle to the Yoruba Nation. 1,123 Fulani sleeper cells had been identified by a University of Ife investigation group commissioned sequel to the kidnap of Professor Yinka Adegbehingbe of the University of Ife by Fulani herdsmen. Security fault lines created by organized Fulani structures inserted into the Yoruba homeland by forces unidentified yet suspected to be highly structured, financed and organized at very high level. These Fulani cells are distributed in groups of at least 15 to 20 complete with women, arms, and other appurtenances of long-term occupation and are now strategically positioned in reserves created by Chief Obafemi Awolowo for Agricultural developments aka Western Nigeria Development Corporation (WNDC) now abandoned.

The report suggested options to begin preparations to strengthen the home base, evaluate scope, assess risks, design strategies and craft appropriate tactics to respond to this new security threat. Political leadership especially Governors of the South West States were given this report yet continued in their state of relaxed slumber in insulated dream of safety with security votes safe in their personal accounts in reliable Banks. 

In a statement by Retired Col. Agbede, key leader of this assignment on behalf of the Council: “As Yoruba elders and leaders in our own rights, we owe it a duty to speak up. 


There are 1,123 cells belonging to armed herdsmen located across Yoruba Nation. The cells are well organized and they appear to network with each other as the cells may not be known except that there has been increase in their organizational skills.”

When Governors ignored the peoples’ complaints and following consistent Fulani aggression, some communities consulted their age-old Pantheons and took local action.

SEPTEMBER 20, 2018- THUNDER AT IJARE- THE SANGO OLUKOSO ACTION

 Within their limited capacity, and without support from the State or Local Governments, some communities tried to defend their territories. Thirty-six cows were reportedly struck dead late one Saturday by thunder bolt on top of a sacred hill at Ijare town in Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State. The dreadful hill known as ‘Oke Owa’ was located on the outskirts of the sleepy community. Speaking with reporters, the Olujare of Ijare, who spoke through his second in command, Chief Wemimo Olaniran, the Sapetu of Ijare, called it an act of God. The Sapetu said the herdsmen had been destroying their farmland for a very long time which had led to confrontation on many occasions. He told reporters it came as a surprise that the Gods came into the matter so suddenly. His words: ”We were there this morning and we saw about 36 cows dead apart from the one inside the bush. It has happened and there is nothing we can do, we regard it as the act of God which nobody can query.’  The Sapetu said triumphantly. The invaders ran away from Ijare, never to terrorise our community again.


All these were precursors to the establishment of AMOTEKUN, an outfit the Federal Government insisted must not operate without the Police and must never carry weapons. The question left to ask now is: Is AMOTEKUN up to this task? If not, what else? Surely the ijare model may not work universally across the huge landscape of Oduduwa especially against sophisticated weaponry. Or Will the ‘Igboho’ template hold for long? 

Think about it.

 *Doubting Thomas's now Shamed!
 *But we shall rise and Triumph Willy Nilly



The strategy is fool proof yet every project invites its own risks. The master strategist is a master risk evaluator but these people are not. It is clear that those who conceived this project, designed its key elements and planned its implementation somehow failed to design risk management into the mix. This is my evaluation of the Project design and plans to hand over Nigeria to Fulani Nations of Africa.

To dominate a people, seize their wealth and enslave them, take full control of political power, get all arms under your control, deny all else of access to any form of weapons, take control of major income organs, deny all else of access to funds. Finally move in surreptitiously and take over physical space. This is what has been going on since 2015.
