Sunday Igboho, self-acclaimed Yoruba activist, has vowed to go on with the Yoruba Nation rally that his group scheduled for Saturday.

Igboho had announced the cancellation of the rally after the Department of State Services (DSS) raided his residence in Ibadan on Wednesday.

But in a Facebook live broadcast on Thursday, Igboho said the rally will hold.

He spoke through Olayomi Koiki, his media aide.

“I can still confirm officially that the Lagos rally in as much as whatever news or rumours you’ve been listening to from different outlets, will go as planned.”

“The 3rd of July Mega rally will go as planned. All arrangements for the rally has been planned and nothing has changed.

“I have spoken to the organisers, nothing has changed so far. 3rd of July from exactly 9:00am in the morning. The whole arrangement and planning is going on.”

The Police had warned Igboho to steer clear of Lagos, saying hoodlums were plotting to hijack the rally.
