The ILANA OMO OODUA and all its affiliate organisations wish to express our profuse gratitude and appreciation to the teeming Yoruba public for their massive support during the just concluded...
Abeokuta Mega Rally.

The rally commenced in front of the Alake Palace grounds around 10:30am after an initial refusal of the police high command to allow us.
We prevailed on the police by emphasising the peaceful nature of our rally and our inalienable right to free association and free assembly, especially while paying homage to our father, the Alake of Egbaland.
The police grudgingly conceded while imploring us not to gather at one spot, nor allow a hijack by enemies of our movement.

Special commendation in this regard must be paid to Mr. Ayo Edun
the officer in charge who led the police to the rally grounds for his maturity and sagacity in cooperating with us and ensuring the release of eleven of our men who were previously arrested before the.commencement of the rally.
The rally took off from the front of the Alake Palace. We went round the main dual carriage road in front of the Palace three times before marching to Panseke, enroute Itoku, Itoro and Lafenwa, all within the burgeoning city.
Along the way, we stopped to address the masses in front of the Palace of the Olowu of Owu, and at the Panseke and Itoku roundabouts.
The rally continued at an incremental mass until we broke it off to go and secure the release of the arrested men.

The leaders we sent to secure their release had just succeeded in doing so as we arrived at Eleweran Police headquarters.
We persuaded the marchers to depart as the police had honoured their words to release all the eleven men as they promised.

We.must all salute the strength, character, forthrightness and sacrifice
of Mrs. Titilayo Ajoke Ojeleye, Iyalode Itori, Abeokuta and leader of Egbe Yoruba Niwa, Omo K'ootu Oliver, who hosted and coordinated the highly successful Abeokuta rally with Ilana Omo Oodua. She gave her all, even marched with us all the way, at her advanced age.
We are immensely proud of her all her associates, including Mr. Ibukun John, Korede Okungbowa and Sheriff Akinola Salaudeen.

Special mention must be made of the Ilana Omo Oodua leaders who rendezvous with us at Abeokuta
the Assistant General Secretary, Dr. Kayode Akinwande, the Ogun state coordinator, Mr. Olawale Taofeek, the Oyo state coordinator, Alhaji Quasim Onikeke, the Ondo state coordinator, Mr. Adeyemi Adetunji
the Kogi state coordinator, Mr. Funso Mojuba, the Delta and Edo states representative, Mr Isaac Ajatiton, Pastor Emmanuel Apata, Comrade Bangbopa Mr. Wale Balogun, Mr Iyanda Wasiu and Comrade Makanjuola Adigun among may others too numerous to mention.
Delegations were led from Oyo, Ogun, Lagos, Ondo, Osun, Ekiti, Kogi, Kwara, Delta and Edo states.

Going foward in this struggle, and to achieve our goals speedily and with the most minimal of casualties
we must instruct our youths and young cadres to maintain discipline and keep to order. They must stick to the form of the struggle as defined by our Baba, the Alana Gbogbo Yoruba, Emeritus Prof. Banji Akintoye.
This is a method to which Ilana Omo Oodua is committed and which the organisation has adopted to wage this battle.

It is failsafe.

We have chosen the path of peace and non violence if the oppressor will not provoke the raw nerves of our people.
However, we shall NEVER concede one square inch of Yoruba territory under any guise to any masquerading invader and we shall uncompromisingly defend our rights to free association, free speech and free assembly!
The young men are advised to follow the leadership who are fearlessly leading from the front and keep the structured form earlier established.
We thank all those who actively participated and/or supported the rally.

It was massively successful, just like the Ibadan mega rally before it.

Opeoluwa George Akinola
Secretary General
Ilana Omo Oodua.

I have carried out my independent findings and I find the following as facts and true...
1. That behind the Army Barracks, Hausas an Fulani numbering over 3,000 are occupying the Army Barracks land and built houses there where the live.
2. That the fulanis/Hausas that we saw 4days ago who were arrested and transported to Akure by Amotekun, didn't come that day, but have been coming in batches day before that day.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A CONQUERED RACE/PEOPLE; Is the Yoruba Nation and other ethnic nationalities apart from the Fulani hegemony conquered people within Nigeria?

1. Conquered people do not have the ability to secure and defend themselves...
2. They do not have the right to use their indigenous language for education, science and administration. Their mother tongue are only use to communicate in markets, ghettos and within the confines of their rooms.
3. Conquered people cannot control their resources, tax system and border control. The sovereignty of their ancestral lands are controlled by another race or ethnic nationality with the use of force, violence and assimilation.

4. Conquered people are regarded as minorities.
