Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho has gotten the support of some Nigerians in diaspora, under the umbrella of Yoruba One Voice, YOV.
The group urged Igboho not to give up on his agitation for Yoruba nation.
According to a statement on Sunday, the group made the remark in a communique issued at the end of a webinar conference.
The group also revealed that agitation for Yoruba Nation is entrenched in Article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the African Charter on People’s Right, urging agitators to continue the movement despite threats from the Federal Government.
“With the success recorded today, YOV had made history, as the largest Yoruba diaspora organization seeking the Yoruba nation self-determination agenda. And with this, I have the conviction that we will definitely achieve this lofty dream.
“We urge Yoruba people all over the world not to relent in the irrevocable campaign for Self Determination for Yoruba people.
“That the Yoruba Nation resolve to forge ahead with renewed zeal for the Right to Self Determination as entrenched in Article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the African Charter on People’s Right.
“Immediate referendum to be supervised by the United Nations on the right to self-determination by the Yoruba Nation,” YOV said.
Recall that Sunday Igboho and others had held several rallies in some Southwestern States as part of the movement for the actualization of Oduduwa Republic as a sovereign state for the Yoruba nation.
The officials of the secret police gunned down two of Igboho’s allies, while others were taken to the DSS custody.
