In a bid to advance their agitation an independent nation, a Yoruba group has launched the currency for the proposed Oduduwa Republic.
The image of the currency, known as “FADAKA, was posted on Twitter via the group’s handle, @OduduwaRepublic, on Sunday.
“Oduduwa National Currency shall be called ‘FADAKA’ Meaning Silver .. or short as just ‘FAD’ Here is a 20 Fadaka Sample Banknote,” the secessionist group tweeted.
Recall that a Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho had earlier during the passing week, declared an independent Yoruba nation.
Igboho and some other Yoruba leaders said that the South West was no longer under Nigeria.
They made it clear that this was not a time to talk about restructuring, resource control or a new constitution but rather the Yoruba to secede from Nigeria.
They called on people of the region to work together for the independence of the Yoruba nation.
