Yoruba Liberation Command (YOLICOM), a South West Group has declared secession from Nigeria and sought the creation of Oduduwa Republic.

The declaration was made yesterday. The group said it had no apology for the decision, as its people wished to see an end to the over 100 years of bitter acrimony, ethnic rivalry, savage killings, blackmail of the Yoruba nation, and excruciating burden of coming from a country with the stigma of terrorism.

The group’s spokesman, Opeoluwa Akinola, who disclosed this at a press conference held at Ogba, said it was time for the Yoruba nation to exit the ‘axis of evil’ called Nigeria, having endured its misery, destruction of values and the cultural genocide inflicted on its heritage.

“We totally reject the idea of restructuring as proposed. It is an attempt to restructure Nigeria on their own terms and not on the terms of the people. Nigeria will never be genuinely restructured by the present crop of political leaders who are themselves beneficiaries of the same skewed system."
