Lagos Police Arrest Two Yoruba Nation Agitators for Disruptive Actions
Two Yoruba nation agitators have been apprehended by the Lagos State Police Command following their disruptive actions at the Alausa Police Division early on Sunday morning. Chanting slogans such as “Yoruba Nation has taken over,” the agitators caused a commotion and even caused injuries to some police officers who were attempting to disperse the crowd.According to a series of tweets shared on the official Twitter account of the Lagos Police Command (@LagosPoliceNG) and attributed to Benjamin Hundeyin, the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police, law enforcement authorities confirmed the arrest of two individuals. The tweets also mentioned that the remaining agitators fled the scene in the face of the police’s swift and coordinated response.The arrested suspects were found in possession of charms, dangerous weapons, and various offensive insignias displaying the name “Yoruba Nation Army.” Simultaneously, another faction of the group was reportedly attempting to seize control of a radio station in Ibadan, Oyo State.The agitators claimed they had come to officially inform the police that the United Nations had granted approval for the establishment of the Yoruba Nation. However, the police have initiated an investigation into their subversive plans and the network of sponsors supporting them. The authorities have assured the public that the identities of these sponsors will soon be revealed, and they will face appropriate legal consequences in the interest of maintaining internal security.In response to these events, Commissioner of Police CP Idowu Owohunwa issued a stern warning to all individuals involved in subversive activities, urging them to stay away from the state. The Lagos State Police Command remains fully prepared to enforce the rule of law and take decisive action against anyone or any group that threatens the peace and stability of the region.
