Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has said he was impressed by the resolve of the camp of Yoruba secessionist, Sunday “Igboho” Adeyemo.

Omokri called Igboho a hero, stating that the Yoruba activist and his fellow self-determination agitators have a right to their freedom of association.

Recall that the Department of State Security Services had stormed the residence of Igboho on Thursday, leading the Yoruba freedom fighter to flee.

The DSS has declared Igboho wanted, claiming that he had been stockpiling arms to lead an insurrection against the Nigerian state.

Although, Igboho was notably absent from the rally, protesters still came out in droves to express their support for Yoruba Nation sovereignty.

Amid heavy security at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park, Ojota, Lagos, protesters defiled the operatives for the mega rally as earlier planned.

Reacting, Reno in a post on his official Facebook page said he was impressed with the rally which held despite intimidation from the security agencies.

He said, “Imagine a government that says that bandits and killer herdsmen can be tolerated even though they kill Nigerians, as long as they believe in one Nigeria, but Sunday Igboho cannot be tolerated because he does not believe in Nigeria even though he doesn’t kill Nigerians.

“Indeed, I am impressed that Igboho’s rally was still held, despite desperate attempts by the Buhari junta to stop it. Sunday Igboho is a hero. He has done no wrong by protecting his people from killer herdsmen because Article 51 of the United Nations charter gives him that right.

“He and his supporters also have a right of freedom of association, and I commend them for utilising that right in the face of obvious attempts to intimidate them.”
