South West Threatens To Secede From Nigeria

Some Yoruba groups in the South-West have threatened to secede from Nigeria if the National Conference fails to adopt regional autonomy.

The groups which include the Yoruba Assembly, Afenifere Renewal Group and Yoruba Academy told newsmen in Lagos that they were displeased that many of their demands had been rejected by the National Conference Committees.

Tokunbo Ajasin, who spoke on behalf of the groups, said they would no longer tolerate a federal system that does not allow the regions to control their resources.
