Major markets and shops in many parts of Ogun State were on Saturday shut as traders and residents stayed back home for the fear of backlash by Yoruba nation agitators and youths.

 

Anxiety gripped the people of the state as the youths and agitators held June 12 protests in Abeokuta, Ijebu-Ode, Sango, and other parts of the state.

 

Our correspondent observed a handful of protesters armed with #BuhariMustGo and #YorubaNation placards on the streets of Abeokuta.

 

Our correspondent, who visited Itoku Adire/Kampala market, Kuto, Sapon, and Lafenwa, all in Abeokuta, observed that businesses were grounded.

 

It was also gathered that major markets in Ijebu-Ode, Ilaro, Sango, and other places were affected over the fear of a clash between pro and anti-government.

 

As early as 7:30am, joint security teams embarked on a show of force around the state capital and some parts of the state to curtail the activities of the protesters.

 

Our correspondent also sighted a police helicopter hovering over the Abeokuta metropolis.
