A Nigerian man called Adeyinka Grandson, who identifies himself as the president of the Young Yoruba for Freedom (YYF), is demanding for Oduduwa Republic and has called on Yorubas all over Nigeria to stand up and fight for it.
Grandson, a Nigerian who resides in the UK, is being referred to as the Nnamdi Kanu of the West for obvious reasons. Grandson shared a video where he called on all Yoruba indigenes across Nigeria to take part in what he referred to as “organized violence” towards the actualization of Oduduwa Republic. He said Yorubas need not be members of the movement to take action.
Grandson listed the course of action that should be taken towards actualizing Oduduwa Republic. Some of these actions include; revert the name Murtala Muhammed International Airport back to its original name Lagos International Airport, replacing Ahmadu Bello Way, VI with Fela’s Way, changing the Nigeria Stock Exchange back to the Lagos Stock Exchange. He said same should also be done to all Yoruba ports and waterways seeing as they belong to the Yorubas and not to Nigeria.
He threatened in the video to use biological weapons against the Hausas and Igbos. He said if met with resistance, his movement will contaminate the air and water in the North and South-Eastern regions of Nigeria with biological weapons.
Some Yorubas were not in support of Grandson after his video was made public and he took to Facebook to criticize them for not buying into his vision for Oduduwa republic.
