The spokesman of Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, Olayomi Koiki, on Tuesday, stormed schools to sensitise schoolchildren on the agitation for Oduduwa Republic.
One of Koiki’s representative in a video on Facebook visited a primary school, with customised Oduduwa Republic books on which was written the proposed anthem and short notes on Yoruba culture.
The representative distributed books to the pupils.
Koiki’s representative was spotted in a classroom sensitising over 20 pupils to the customs and traditions of the Yoruba nation.
He said, “We want self-determination so we can be free from slavery, those at the helm of affairs in Nigeria lie to us. They claim we are future leaders but their actions state otherwise. We have decided that our young ones must be successful, but we thought, how do we achieve that? We reasoned that if we remain under the country, Nigeria, this might be unattainable because all our resources have been embezzled by the Fulanis.”
“If we complain, we’ll be asked to keep quiet. The Fulanis go to farms, rape our women, kill our people and those who manage to escape, don’t escape unhurt. We felt an end should come to all of these.”
He also taught the pupils and the teachers the proposed Oduduwa Republic national anthem and encouraged the pupils to inform their parents of the struggle for the independence of the new nation.
