PHOTOS: Thunderstorm Disrupts ‘Yoruba Nation’ Rally In Osun


A demonstration tagged ‘Yoruba nation’ rally which could not be stopped by the police in Osogbo, Osun state capital, was eventually disrupted by thunderstorms.

The rally which was held yesterday afternoon was organised by some residents and youth leaders led by Sunday Adeyemo, who is better known as Sunday Igboho.

Igboho has been agitating for the secession of the Yorubas from Nigeria.

He came to prominence after he asked herders in Ibarapa area of Oyo state to leave the area amid allegations that they were complicit in its security woes.

Prominent Yoruba elders already distanced themselves from him over the secession bid.

The youth leader arrived at the venue at about 1 pm. Not long after, he mounted a makeshift podium to address hundreds of his supporters.

He spoke about the need for an independent Yoruba nation, adding that Nigeria’s unity as one country is no longer acceptable.

However, a downpour that was accompanied by thunderstorms began not long after Igboho finished talking.
