Group launches currency, ‘Fadaka’ for proposed Yoruba nation

A group clamouring for the independence of the Yoruba nation has introduced the currency for the proposed Yoruba nation, Oduduwa Republic.

The group posted the image of the proposed currency on its Twitter handle @OduduwaRepublic, on Sunday.

The tweet read: “Oduduwa National Currency shall be called ‘FADAKA’ Meaning Silver .. or short as just ‘FAD’ Here is a 20 Fadaka Sample Banknote.”

This comes days after Yoruba historian, Banji Akintoye alongside freedom fighter, Sunday Adeyemo, aka, Igboho, declared the sovereignty of the Yoruba nation.

The move however triggered a backlash, with Arewa youths calling on Yorubas residing in the north to leave within three days.
