Six governors from the South-West geopolitical zone convened an emergency meeting on Friday evening over current national issues, it was learnt.
Quoting a source who preferred anonymity because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, Saturday Punch reported that the governors met virtually and discussed sundry issues.
The paper said the source could not confirm whether the governors discussed the raid by operatives of the Department of State Services on the Ibadan residence of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho.
However, it was gathered that the issue was discussed, among others.
“They are meeting but no one is sure if it is because of Igboho. There are several reasons governors can meet (on) especially in the face of the precarious situation ( in the country),” the source said.
It was gathered that governors who took part in the meeting were Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Gboyega Oyetola (Osun) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo).
The meeting was chaired by Akeredolu, who is the chairman of the governors’ forum in the zone.
In Igboho’s absent, Yoruba nation agitators defied security presence to hold rally in Lagos
