There was also a heavy presence of security operatives including police, Department of State Services and Amotekun Corps at the venue.
Commercial activities in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, were on Saturday paralysed as hundreds of persons trooped out to join the Ilana Omo Oodua rally.
Ilana Omo Oodua, a group, agitating for a sovereign Yoruba nation, stormed the state capital to continue its support rally in all the Southwest States.
Vehicular traffic was diverted from the busy Fajuyi park/flyover.
Pictures of hundreds of the agitators with placards were seen by SaharaReporters on Saturday afternoon.
There was also a heavy presence of security operatives including police, Department of State Services and Amotekun Corps at the venue, a witness said.
One of the agitators and member of the Oodua Action Movement, Olusola Oyemakinde, said, “We are here in support of the agitation for Oodua nation. Every one of us can see the state of Nigeria whereby there is no justice. There is lopsidedness and insecurity is the order of the day.
“The government of Nigeria has failed in its responsibility of securing lives. We cannot continue this way. The Yoruba nation is the answer for us.”
