Youths in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, are currently protesting the alleged killing of a teenager.

Our correspondent observed that some youths, who are protesting in the Mokola area, have blocked some roads in protest of the death of their kinsman.

It was gathered that the teenager, whose name could not be ascertained, was allegedly killed by an operative of the Amotekun Corps.

Sources told newsmen that the teenager, who is a printer apprentice, was sent to buy food when he was killed.

Our correspondent observed that the aggrieved residents burnt tyres while protesting the death.

They blocked the UCH- Mokola Road for a few minutes.

They later moved to the Oyo State Secretariat in Agodi, where they again blocked the road.

Some of the commuters plying the Total-Garden Secretariat Road, Government House Road and Parliament Road had to find alternative routes.

“Amotekun killed one boy that was going to buy food, because he is a printer and they spent the night at their shop,” a source told newsmen.

Our correspondent observed that normalcy has returned to Mokola as at the time of filing this report.

But, the aggrieved residents are still protesting, blocking the Secretariat Road as at the time of writing this report.

All efforts made by newsmen to get a reaction from the Commandant of Amotekun Corps in the state, Olayinka Olayanju proved abortive.

Several calls put through to his mobile phone were not answered.

Messages sent to him have not been replied as at the time of writing this report on Wednesday.
