The police in Lagos have charged 48 suspects arrested during the Oodua Republic demonstration around the Gani Fawehimi Freedom park of the State few weeks ago.

Commissioner of Police Hakeem Odumosu charged the suspects before a Magistrate Court sitting in Yaba.

But last week, the Yoruba self-determination groups’ umbrella body Ilana Omo Oodua (IOO) had rose in defence of those arrested, securing their bail from the Lagos State Magistrate Court sitting in Yaba.
