Youths in Oyo State, who have been campaigning alongside other youths across the nation, for two weeks now, have said that they are suspending all protests to ensure proper co-ordination of all participants.

They therefore gave the governor of Oyo State, Eng. Seyi Makinde, 48hours to set up a credible judicial panel of enquiry that will look into the issues of injustice, holistically.

The group of protesters made this known in a commuinique signed by the Convener, Kunle Odujare, and expressed displeasure over the violence in Ojoo area of Ibadan while also condemning the Lagos massacre of protesters.

The group shared its sympathy with the families of those who lost their lives across the country  and prayed for quick recovery for the injured.

"Oyo youths are responsible and would ensure that protesters henceforth will be safe, as measures are being put in place to protect lives of Nigerians and prevent further breakdown of law and order

"Youths in Oyo State which is the pacesetter state will ensure that the process of expressing their minds on the need for police reforms, bad governance, infrastructural developments among others will be maturely and deccently communicated without crisis or causing mayhem in the state", the communique said.

The group equally advised those blocking the roads to desist from such because the protest can be co-ordinated without making life miserable for others.

They however reiterated that, Nigerian youths will not be tired to continue the protest until a better Nigeria is achieved.

The group revealed that henceforth,announcements will be made on the location of protests in the state but that Challenge, Iwo-road and Secretariat are key loctions that would not be changed.

The group thereafter called on the media to continue to support and give a voice to the protest.
