Oyo state governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has ordered the immediate closure of both privates and public schools across the state, following the hijacked of the peaceful protest by suspected hoodlums.
He said, ” I have directed that all schools in Ibadan, should be closed from tomorrow, Wednesday, October 21 2020 for the rest of this week. The situation will be reviewed on Friday, October 23 2020, and then further directives will be given.
” Please call 615 should anyone attempt to disrupt your legitimate business activities.
” We will continue to seek ways to engage with peaceful protesters. Our plan is that in the shortest possible time, we can finally say the days of large-scale and wanton police brutality and injustice is a thing of the past. Let me also use this opportunity to call on members of the Nigeria Police Force to remain professional in the discharge of their duties as they will be held responsible for their actions.
