After the invasion of the Oyo State secretariat by suspected Yoruba nation agitators on Saturday, Ismaila Malomo, one of the agitators, has implicated Modupe Abiola Onitiri as one of their sponsors.

Speaking to journalists on Monday while being paraded alongside 20 others by the Oyo State Police Command, Malomo disclosed his role in driving the group from Idi-Iroko in Ogun State to the secretariat in Ibadan.

He also revealed that other sponsors, including individuals in the diaspora like Onitiri, have been holding virtual meetings with them, claiming to have secured sovereignty from the United Nations to declare the Yoruba Nation.

Alabi Ogundeji, another suspected agitator and a teacher at the Federal Government College, Oyo, defended their actions, stating that they had followed legal steps, including issuing petitions and embarking on a referendum, before invading the secretariat. The suspects, including Adeyemo Joseph Oluwaseun, Adeyemo Peter, and others, were paraded by the state Police Commissioner, Adebola Hamzat, who condemned their actions as criminal and unpatriotic.

Hamzat reassured the public of the command's commitment to protecting lives and property, announcing a review of the security architecture to address present-day challenges.
