YAF Condemns Police Order Stopping Lagos Rally, Sensitisation

ABUJA – Adeshina Animashuan, Na­tional Coordinator of the Yoruba Appraisal Forum (YAF) has frowned at the or­ders issued by the Lagos State Police command stopping the rally and sensitisation motor­cade planned by the forum in Lagos State.

YAF, in a statement, ex­pressed regret that the police could not distinguish between it and other groups champion­ing Yoruba self-determination and independence with the disguised objective of destabi­lising the country.

It noted that its objectives and consistent campaigns for peace throughout Yorubaland, the South-West and all over Ni­geria had been misunderstood and misconstrued by the po­lice, which had also misrepre­sented YAF to the public as one of those groups claiming to be agitating for the creation of a Yoruba nation and the disinte­gration of the Nigerian state.

On Thursday, Lagos Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, had in a statement warned that the police would deal with YAF members should the group go ahead with sched­uled Peace Rally/Sensitisation Motorcade planned to hold at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park, Ojota.

Animashaun stressed that YAF has no affiliation with any individual or groups champi­oning the disintegration and dissolution of Nigeria under the guise of agitating for a Yoruba Nation as its rallies have been for the peace and unity of the country.
