The Yoruba Welfare Group (YWG) Sunday warned the agitators of Oduduwa Republic, Ilana Omo Oodua, against turning Yorubaland to a testing ground for any form of criminalactivities.
President of the group, Comrade Abdulhakeem Alawuje, handed down the warning in Ibadan at a rally to counter Saturday’s mega rally by the Prof. Banjo Akintoye- led Ilana Omo Oodua.
Alawuje also cautioned Prof. Akintoye and his group to henceforth desist from claiming to be speaking for the Yoruba race as only the prominent traditional rulers from the South-west region are authorised to speak on behalf of the Yoruba people.
The YWG president emphasised that the Yoruba race will not allow any group to set Yorubaland on fire in the guise of seeking self determination.
He cautioned the entire Yoruba people, mostly the Youth, and women not to allow themselves to be used for selfish purposes by any group.
“It will be very bad of youth and masses to allow themselves to be used by any individual or a group of emissaries of Satan to disturb the peace of Yoruba land,” he said.
