Protests have resumed in some areas within Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, over the ongoing naira and fuel scarcity.
It was gathered that the protesters first converged at Eleyele junction, in Ibadan North West Local Government Area of the state. The protesters blocked the ever-busy Eleyele-Ologuneru-Eruwa road causing gridlock around Eleyele, Ijokodo, Sango-Poly road.
Motorists have been turning back to seek alternative routes while schoolchildren hurriedly return home for fear of being attacked.
It was gathered that the protest has spread to other areas within the city.
Recall that a similar protest rocked the city on Friday, February 3, where some hoodlums within the popular Araromi spare parts market, Gate, took advantage of the protest and set ablaze a police station, stole the station’s Plasma TV, vandalised a branch of WEMA Bank in the area and looted some roadside shops.
