Hundreds of protesters storm Obasanjo's mansion

20 April 2016, 08:34

Ogun State – Hundreds of Indegenes and residents of Sango-Ijoko in Ado-Odo/Ota local government area of Ogun State reportedly stormed former president Olusegun Obasanjo’s hilltop mansion protesting what they called "boundary anomaly" of the proposed Sango-Ijoko Local Council Development Area (LCDA) in the state.

According to Leadership, the protesters, who carried placards with various inscriptions, called on Obasanjo to save them from "unjust" boundary adjustment.

The aggrieved protesters handed in their petition at the former leader’s house in his absence, the report said. 

"Our primary purpose of coming here is to press forward our agitation that our community should not be separated or divided. We are hearing as a matter of rumour that part of our community will be merged with Ota and basically these areas, Araromi, Ketere and others are the core settlers of Sango," they were quoted as saying.

The protest was a new twist over the proposed creation of 37 LCDAs out of the existing 20 local government areas by the Governor Ibikunle Amosun-led administration.
