The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has said the South-West’s movement for secession and establishment of Oduduwa Republic from Nigeria is not negotiable.
In an interview with BBC Yoruba, Gani Adams said he is solidly behind Yoruba people in their quest for Oduduwa Republic.
He said, “Whatever they want is what I also want. But we are supposed to ask where our kings, leaders and politicians are going because I also want the Oduduwa nation.
“There are many activists around the world who say they want the Oduduwa Republic. Never will I be the enemy of the Yorubas, and we do our virtual meetings and it is obvious that our people want the independence of the Oduduwa nation.”
“It is the fault of security chiefs who have failed in their responsibilities to protect citizens, that is why people are agitating for the creation of Oduduwa nation but if the security forces join hands together with the citizens, we will be assured of strong security.
“We have written letters to all the Obas in Yorubaland, and I signed the letters alongside members of the Oodua Peoples Congress and security guards to report any issue of insecurity,” he said.
