- Yoruba nation agitators stormed Abeokuta on Saturday in continuation of their peaceful rally.
Residents of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Saturday, refused to come out for their daily activities as a result of the June 12 nationwide protest.
The people of Ogun State did not come out for their businesses as they feared being attacked by protesters calling for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation and those agitating for the Yoruba nation.
According to reports, the Abeokuta metropolis turned into a ‘ghost city’ with shops and malls kept under lock and key.
Parks and garages in Abeokuta and other major cities were empty, even as taxi drivers and okada riders stayed in their houses.
EKO HOT BLOG observes that the ever-busy Panseke, Omida, Lafenwa, Kuto, Itoku, Sapon markets, and others in the state capital were without buyers or sellers.
Many petrol stations refused to open for business, while some render skeletal services.
Few people who went out resorted to trekking as they found it extremely difficult to get cabs or bikes to transport them.
Locals, who spoke to the press said “we prefer to be in our houses than to come out and die.”
Meanwhile, some Yoruba nation agitators stormed Abeokuta on Saturday in continuation of their peaceful rally.
Likewise, another set of #Buharimustgo protesters was also seen at the NUJ Secretariat, Okelewo around 10 am.
This is coming despite Governor Dapo Abiodun’s plea that residents of the state should not engage in any protest as it could be hijacked by hoodlums.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that Gov Abiodun led other government functionaries to celebrate this year’s Democracy Day.
The event was held at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta.
