PHOTOS: Again, Protest Rocks Ibadan Over Naira, Fuel Scarcity

As a result of the scarcity of new naira notes and fuel across the country, some residents across various areas within the Ibadan metropolis in the early hours of Wednesday, have trooped into the major roads blocking the free flow of vehicular movement while some are moving around the major roads.

Some of the affected areas include Eleiyele, Oke-Ado, Molete, Sango and other parts of the city.

Daily Independent gathered that the protesters first converged at Eleyele junction, in Ibadan North West Local Government Area of the state to block 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 school children hurriedly return home for fear of being attacked.

It was gathered that the protest has spread to other areas within the city like Oke Ado, and Molete in Ibadan’s South West local area.

People in the area including traders and officers were locking their shops and offices for fear of being attacked or looting their wares.

It could be recalled 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.
