One person was reportedly killed on Wednesday in Adeoyo and Yemetu area of Ibadan, the Oyo capital.
SaharaReporters learnt that a 12-year-old boy referred to as Ikoko (Wolf), who recently relocated to Ibadan from Lagos, led somethugs to displace residents of Yemetu and kill one person.
Eyewitnesses told SaharaReporters that the incident resulted in the blocking of roads resulting in Agodi-Gate and Molete areas within the city.
However, the residents couldn’t ascertain the explanation for the crisis that confused the city.
A resident of Beere, simply identified as Kabiru, told saharaReporters that two people had already been killed in Yemetu area of Ibadan.
“The problem started around 7am. That boy called Ikoko is behind the entire crisis. As we speak, I saw one person killed already. That police have appropriated the place but I fear that there’ll be a reprisal. If nothing is completed to curb this, those guys may extend the fight to the opposite side.
“The boy is simply 12 years old but he’s deadly,” one among the eyewitnesses said.
An Ibadan Mogaji (chief), Wale Oladoja led some chiefs in Ibadan to the bottom of the hoodlums last December to mediate between the govt and therefore the hoodlums.
When contacted, Chief Oladoja said, “Well, I even have done my best. I even have talked to the hoodlums on behalf of the govt but the governor didn’t follow up. for a way long can we continue with this crisis?”
