0

The Popular Agodi Secretariat of Oyo Government was stormed by group of protesters who carried placards and sang solidarity demanding for the urgent disbandment of Special Anti-Robbery Squard (SARS).

The #ENDSARS protesters, who were about 1,500 in numbers blocked the Secretariat round about with a total number of exotics Vehincles.

The protesters’ placards displayed Inscriptions like ” TELL SARS to refund my N3.2million ENDSARS”, “I am my parent’s retirement plan, why do you want to kill me? “We are not criminals” and “I am not a Yahoo boy” among others.

For about four hours, the three entrances were shut and commuters in and out of the Secretariat were stranded.

ADVERT BANNER 1

For hours, the lawmaker was denied the opportunity to address them while the protesters refused to allow him to leave the venue or return into the Secretariat and no police or security operative was seen anywhere around the protest area.

Road users en route Agodi-Government House Road, Secretariat-Parliament Road and Secretariat-Bodija road witnessed gridlock as the protesters ensured all the roads were on standstill.

The protesters, mostly Youths, expressed dissatisfaction at the failure of the state governor, Seyi Makinde, or his Deputy could not speak with them. They however vowed never to be addressed by anyone except top government officials.

An attempt by Commissioner for Youths and Sports, Asiwaju Seun Fakorede, to address the protesters fell on deaf ears as they insisted on listening only to Makinde.

House of Assembly member for Ibadan southeast II, Mr. Yussuf Adebisi, who also attempted to pacify the protesters, was harassed and molested.

As at the time of filing this report, the protesters were still laying siege on the Secretariat entrance, vowing not to vacate until Governor Makinde shows up.
