Wakili: Ibarapa youths protest arraignment of 3 OPC members


Youths across the three local government areas of Ibarapa ares of Oyo State, yesterday, protested against the arraignment of three members of Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) following alleged killing of a woman during their arrest of a suspected Fulani kidnap, Iskilu Wakili.

Recall that some OPC members arrested Wakili at his residence in Kajola area of Ayete culminating in the apprehension of three of them by the police on the ground that a woman was killed in the operation, which sparked outrage.

The protesters stormed the State Governor’s Office, Ibadan, demanding immediate and unconditional release of the alleged suspects who were arraigned for conspiracy, arson, willful destruction and murder.

They decried the arrest of the OPC members with placards that said, “Hang villains like Wakili”, “Stop paying Fulani terrorists while victims are abandoned.’”
