The proposed one million man march by Yoruba self determination groups has received the backing of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which has pledged to stand with the groups.
IPOB’s leader, Nnamdi Kanu, while making the pledge in a tweet on Wednesday, said IPOB will also stand with all oppressed ethnic groups in Nigeria.
He tweeted: “As the brave men & women of #Oduduwa plan this historic “one million man march across Southwest”, I want to assure all & sundry that #IPOB stand with you & all oppressed ethnic groups in #Nigeria in this brave step & I implore all that desire freedom to support it. #WeMove.”
The march, aimed at drawing attention to the agitation for an Oduduwa Republic, originally scheduled to hold today, Wednesday, has been postponed till further notice, so as to allow for consultation with other Yoruba social-cultural and self determination groups.
