Some of them were seen with items suspected to be charms, as they dressed themselves like ancient Yoruba warlords.
As they marched round the Abeokuta metropolis, they carried placards saying “#Endsars, #Endpolicebrutality.”
Barricading the road from Panseke to Omida, Isale Igbein, they stopped at Ogun State Government House to express their grievances, but the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, was not there to attend to them.
