Protest rocks Ogbomoso over insecurity, kidnapping, others

Protesters on Monday stormed the streets of Ogbomoso to call the State Government attention to the increasing spate of insecurity in the town.

The protest was a reaction to the recent kidnapping and murder of an hotelier, Gbenga Owolabi and Rachael Opadele, a 500-level student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, (LAUTECH).

The peaceful protest, championed 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.
