Otunba Ganiyu Adams also known as Gani Adams, born April 30, 1970 is a Nigerian social activist and politician. He is of Akoko, Ondo state descent as prophet TB. Joshua.
Ganiyu is the leader of a faction of the Oodua Peoples Congress, a secessionist and nationalist organisation based in Nigeria, which supports a sovereign state for the Yoruba people.
Oodua Peoples Congress was formed in 1994 as a socio-cultural group to promote Yoruba people and culture.
As the founding member and National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress, Gani rose to nationwide popularity after Inspector General of Police Musiliu Smith declared him wanted in 2000 with a financial reward of N100,000 for his group’s involvement in violent clashes.
He was however arrested on 22 August 2001 but was later released after being held in prisons in Lagos, Abeokuta and Abuja.
OTUNBA Ganiyu Adams might be on his way to become the new Aare ona kakanfo of yoruba land.
