Yoruba Nation: Sporadic gunshot in Ojota as police disperse agitators

The police are trying to disperse a crowd of agitators who converged on Ojota area of Lagos for a ‘Yoruba nation’ protest.

The police unleashed water cannon on the protesters who were over 50 in number.

The agitators held placards, demanding an independent state for the south-west region.

”No going back; Yoruba nation now,” they shouted.

Security operatives had surrounded Gani Fawehinmi Park, the venue of the protest, to forestall a breakdown of order.
