Perhaps due to entreaties on him, Yoruba Nation agitator, Mr. Sunday Adeyemo alias Sunday Igboho, has called off the Yoruba Nation rally he planned for Saturday July 3rd in Lagos.
In an interview with BBC News Pidgin this afternoon, Igboho said the rally would no longer hold. The rally had earlier taken place in Oyo, Osun, Ogun, Ekiti and Ondo states with serious security breaches.
The suspension of the rally came hours after his residence in Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo State capital was attacked by gunmen.
There had been apprehension in many quarters over the Lagos version of the rally. Some Yoruba leaders and security agents had appealed to Igboho to halt the rally.
But he had stuck to his guns, saying no jupiter could stop the rally.
