Protesters stormed the streets of Ogbomoso over the increasing spate of insecurity in the town after the kidnapping and murder of an hotelier, Gbenga Owolabi and Rachael Opadele, a 500-level student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, (LAUTECH).

The protest organised by Ogbomoso Consultative Council and Ogbomoso Community Youth Forum began at Takie Square, Ogbomoso and moved round the town before converging at Soun Ogunlola Hall.

Addressing the protesters, a representative of the traditional heads and chiefs, said they were taking necessary steps on the matter, urging residents to cooperate with OPC, Amotekun and other indigenous security agencies towards combating crimes in Ogbomoso.

President of Ogbomoso Community Youth Forum, Rev Peter Olaleye, said: “Our ancestors are brave and bold, they were never conquered by any war not even the dreaded Fulani war. We will never allow any intruder to take over land enough is enough.”
