Photos- Noticeable Things That Happened During The Oduduwa Rally In Ibadan Today

Thousands of Yoruba youths, women, and leaders have taken to the streets of Ibadan to demand the creation of the Oduduwa Republic. Professor Banji Akintoye, a former Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is the group's leader. Due to heavy security presence at the entrance and around Mapo Hall, the rally, which was scheduled to begin around 9 a.m. on Saturday, could not begin until 11 a.m.

Below are photos and noticeable things that happened during the Oduduwa nation rally in Ibadan today.

The first noticeable thing that happened during the rally was the huge turnout of yorubas. The crowd was so huge that it led to a traffic congestion around the area.

Another noticeable thing was the presence of security personnel to ensure hoodlums don't hijack the rally and create chaos. The rally was peaceful and well coordinated.

Supporters of Oduduwa nation from Delta State were also present at the rally to show their allegiance.

Another noticeable thing that happened during the rally was the moment protesters stood still to sing the Oduduwa anthem. All road traffic stood still in respect. You can watch the video HERE

How do you keep a diverse ethnic group happy and united? This has been Nigeria's greatest challenge for many years .The Igbos wants division, the Yorubas want division. But If it's not the will of God for Nigeria to separate may all those fueling speration in this country for their selfish gains be exposed
