Spread the gist

Afenifere, the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, has dissociated itself from a video that has gone viral, giving an ultimatum to some other Nigeria nationals, especially the Igbos, to leave Yorubaland on or before October 25, 2020.

Afenifere Leader, Pa Reuben Fasonranti, issued a statement on Saturday evening, the group said it knew nothing about the video nor its producer.

According to Fasonranti, “The most embarrassing to me as the leader of Afenifere was that the young man who made the announcement kicked off with the well-known tune of Afenifere anthem, thus giving the impression that it was the Afenifere’s initiative.

“This is to say that we do not know anything about the quit order nor are we in any way connected with its issuance nor its initiators.

“For the time being, in addition to our other releases, let us all maintain peace.”
