Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara Reporters, has also called for a nationwide protest on June 12 against President Buhari’s administration.
Igboho’s spokesman, Olayomi Koiki in a live video programme aired on Wednesday night, called on southwest Governors to cooperate with the peaceful protesters during the exercise.
“Let us tell the Federal Government that if there is carnage this weekend, the international community will be watching; if the military kills any Nigerian this weekend, it would be extremely hot,” he warned.
“The Yoruba Nation rally will take place in every section of Yoruba land and the rest of the country where it is scheduled to take place.
“The red alert will go off on Friday.
People should begin stockpiling food items by Friday night.
“We are not backing down this weekend; we are ready to reclaim what is rightfully ours.”
He also urged protesters to ‘fast’ on Friday.
