Senator Shehu Sani has explained why rainfall “dispersed” Yoruba Nation agitators on Saturday at the Nelson Mandela Freedom Park in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

Sani, who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate said the rainfall is a “divine message” for the agitators to change their minds and embrace a united Nigeria.

Popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho, had joined other agitators to demand Yoruba Nation on Saturday.

Igboho 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.

It was learnt that rain began to fall as soon as Igboho stepped down from the podium, thus, “dispersing” the agitators.

Reacting in a tweet, Sani wrote, “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.”
