In a dramatic declaration of secession from Nigeria, Ms. Modupe Onitiri Abiola, who has self-proclaimed herself as the President of the Yoruba Nation, made headlines yesterday, April 12, 2024. Ms. Abiola, the widow of the late M.K.O. Abiola, announced the establishment of the Yoruba Nation during a fervent and heavily attended rally in Lagos.

Ms. Modupe Onitiri-Abiola,  has declared the independence of the Yoruba states from Nigeria, calling the new entity the "Sovereign Democratic Republic of Yoruba." This declaration was made on April 12, 2024, amidst rising tensions in the region.

Ms. Onitiri-Abiola, who has self-proclaimed herself as the President of the new Yoruba nation, stated that she has effectively reclaimed Yorubaland from the Nigerian state. During her impassioned speech, she announced that the territories comprising South West Nigeria are no longer under Nigerian jurisdiction.

In furtherance of her declaration, Ms. Onitiri-Abiola revealed the formation of what she termed the "Yoruba Army," a group comprised of Yoruba nation agitators, which she claims is tasked with defending the newly declared sovereignty. Details about the size, structure, or capability of this "army" remain unclear, and there has been no independent verification of its existence or operational readiness.

The announcement has sparked a mixture of support and heavy criticism, with many dismissing it as a delusional act by an isolated group without any real political power or legitimacy. Critics argue that such declarations could lead to significant unrest and violence in what is already a volatile political climate in Nigeria.

Government authorities have yet to issue a formal response, but security forces are reportedly on high alert throughout the South West. The Nigerian government is expected to address this declaration imminently, with analysts predicting a strong condemnation and reaffirmation of the indivisibility of the Nigerian state.

Legal experts and political analysts are weighing in on the implications of this move, noting that such a unilateral declaration of independence has no basis under Nigerian or international law and is likely to be met with significant resistance.

As the situation develops, the eyes of the nation and the international community are closely watching the developments unfolding in the South West, hoping for a peaceful resolution to this unexpected challenge to Nigeria's territorial integrity.
