ILLORIN NOT PART OF YORUBA LAND - SHEIKH ABEEB ABDULLAH
According to Sahara Reporters, a video circulating online shows a group of Islamic clerics led by the principal of the Islamic Arabic School In Agege Lagos, Sheik Abeeb Abdullah, has warned Yoruba elders and those agitating for Oduduwa Republic to desist from counting Ilorin among Yoruba land.
According to the Islamic scholar, Ilorin is not part of Yoruba land as it has no tie to the Alaafin of Oyo Kingdom. He went ahead to say that despite Illorin being among the towns within River Niger by geographical location, it doesn't mean it should be classified as part of Yoruba land. So all those claiming that towns under Kwara state belong to the Yoruba is talking rubbish. See the video here
