WEDNESDAY- 18th August, 2021: Youths in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, are currently protesting the alleged killing of a teenager.

The protesting youths have blocked some roads around Mokola area in protest of the death of their kinsman.

It was gathered that the teenager, whose name could not be ascertained, was allegedly killed by an operative of the Amotekun Corps.

The teenager, who is a printer apprentice, was sent to buy food when he was killed, according to repot.

Details of the death are still sketchy.

The aggrieved youths burnt tyres while protesting the death. They blocked the UCH- Mokola Road for a few minutes.

They later moved to the Oyo State Secretariat in Agodi, where they again blocked the road.

Some of the commuters plying the Total-Garden Secretariat Road, Government House Road and Parliament Road had to find alternative routes.

A source “Amotekun killed one boy that was going to buy food, because he is a printer and they spent the night at their shop.”

While normalcy has returned to Mokola, the aggrieved residents are still protesting, blocking the Secretariat Road as at the time of writing this report.
