Following Sunday Igboho’s suspension of the Yoruba Nation Lagos rally due to attack on his Ibadan home, the co-organisers of the rally, Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO), have vowed to proceed with or without him.
The rally is scheduled for Saturday July 3 in Lagos. Igboho called off the march on Thursday after Nigerian forces stormed his home in the Soka area Ibadan on Thursday.
But his partners have insisted they will proceed, vowing that no amount of intimidation will make them to bow.
