The leader and chairman of Yoruba Self-Determination Struggle, also known as Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, Wale Adeniran, has resigned his membership from the group over allegations of fraud and embezzlement.

In a video shared on a YouTube channel Omoboriowo media, on Saturday 7, Adeniran resigned from his position.

According to the chairman his reason for stepping aside was to allow thorough investigation into the allegation of fraud levelled against him.

He called on persons who claim to have evidence against him to come forward and make it known to the public.

He charge the Yoruba elders to set up a committee to probe the allegations against him.

His words:

“I want to use this medium to step aside as Chairman of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, as member of Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide, I step down as the participant in the Yoruba Nation struggle so as to allow for unfettered investigations of all these allegations.

“Because in all developed parts of the world, what they normally do is that, if there is an allegation against public office holder, he or she will step aside to allow thorough investigation, that’s what I’m doing right now.

“I thank you all, and whatever comes out after the investigation should be made public. There shouldn’t be secret there. They should publicise the outcome of the investigation because all Yoruba must know the truth about the fraud allegation involving the struggle. Thank you."
