The Nigeria Police has listed lists of dangerous weapons recovered yesterday from the Yoruba Nation agitators.

The Eagle reports that the group had stirred the ancient city of Ibadan after they invaded the Oyo State Government Secretariat, Agodi located in Ibadan, an action the police has described as a separatist agenda:

“The suspects, who were in military camouflages came heavily armed in an unregistered silver coloured Nissan urban caravan bus containing cutlasses, pump action rifles, cartridges, assorted charms and an O’dua nation agitation flag.

He described their action as criminal, unpatriotic and a clear case of treasonable felony & terrorism which would be melted with adequate sanctions under the laws of the land.

Osifeso, however, assured the public of the command’s unwavering protection of their lives and property.

The Eagle reports that aside the Yoruba Nation Agitators, there have been other protests groups and actions in the country, either driven by ideological or economic agenda.
