Socio-economic and commercial activities were totally paralysed on Sunday, October 11, 2020, in Ojaagbo, Isale Ora, Ita Alasa and Owode areas of Ogbomoso, following protests staged by some youths in the areas.
It was gathered that Sunday’s demonstration was in continuation of peaceful EndSARS protest staged on Saturday, October 10, 2020, during which one Isiaka Jimoh was killed by police bullets.
BCOS Correspondent in Ogbomoso, Aderemi Akanmu, reports that not less than five people have again been shot on Sunday, during the demonstration; adding that the victims have been rushed to an hospital in the ancient city.
It was also reported that vehicular movement was totally obstructed for hours as all roads in the areas were deserted.
Efforts made by delegate sent by the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi, to the scene of the protest to stop the people proved abortive as the aggrieved youths turned deaf ears to the plea.
