Adeleke: Fresh protest rocks Osun over tribunal judgement


Following Friday’s Osun election petition tribunal judgment in favour of former governor Adegboyega Oyetola, protesters have blocked major roads within the State capital, Osogbo.

Newsmen reports that the protesting residents of the State have blocked the busy Osogbo-Ikirun road, Gbongan-Ibadan road, Oke-Fia, Old Garage and Freedom Park.

They were seen disrupting the free flow of traffic, harassing and beating up minibus (korope) drivers.

Commercial motorcyclists were not spared as well.

The development caused many commuters to be stranded, just as many business owners who owned shops around the axis did not open for business transactions.

However, the protests did not spread to residential areas as daily activities went on as usual without disturbances

The protests also spread to towns like Ikirun, Ilesa, Ilobu, Iwo, Ile-Ife and other towns where residents annoyed with the tribunal judgment also trooped out enmasse to protests.

Meanwhile, the Osun All Progressives Congress (APC) expressing concern have urged the Inspector General of Police, Alkali Baba Usman to intervene and put a stop to threat to lives and properties rocking Osun.
