Senator Shehu Sani says the rainfall that “dispersed” Yoruba Nation agitators on Saturday, May 15, in Osogbo, the Osun state capital, is a “divine message” for them to change their minds and embrace a united Nigeria.
The Yoruba nation agitators including the popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho had convened at the Nelson Mandela Freedom Park in Osogbo for a protest.
Igboho, according to The Punch, addressed the rally which witnessed heavy presence of operatives of the Nigeria Police Force as well as men of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.
The newspaper stated that rain began to fall as soon as Igboho stepped down from the podium, thus, “dispersing” the agitators.
Reacting to the development, Senator Sani who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, tweeted:
“The heavy rainfall that dispersed the separatist agitators in Osogbo is a divine message for them to change cause and work for the unity of our country.
“The idea of an ethnic or religious purist state stems from a xenophobic mind intolerant to co-existence.”
