Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) Oodua Liberation Movement (OLM) Revolutionary Council of Nigeria (RCN)

The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) is a militant socio-cultural Yoruba nationalist organization formed in 1997. The Yoruba, numbering about 25 million, live in the South Western part of Nigeria. The southern Nigeria-based group opposed the late dictator Sani Abacha, and along with other pro-democracy groups was at the forefront of the political struggle to restore democracy. It has supported Yoruba nationalism and a strong federal system in Nigeria. Its large membership [which according to some reports runs to millions] makes it vulnerable to the infiltration by extremely radical elements.
