The vehicles of the self-styled Yoruba youth leader on Friday, February 26, were reportedly stopped by operatives of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and the Department of State Security (DSS) along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. According to former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, the self-styled activist was said to be on “his way to see Baba Ayo Adebanjo”, a Yoruba elder and one of the Afenifere leaders in Lagos.
