By Richard Akintade, Osogbo

A protest has broken out in Osogbo over the killing of purported “yahoo boys” by operatives of the SARS.

The protesters made bonfire in and around Ofatedo area of the State Capital.

The untimely death of the Yahoo boys in the accident occurred last night while the SARS operatives where chasing them.

According to our Correspondent, irate youths have taken over the community, blocking thoroughfares and disrupting vehicular movements.

One of the residents, who spoke with The Conclave, said, “this is reportedly due to the fatality allegedly suffered by a young indigene of the community which was said to happen in the hands of SARS men.

“Until justice is done by bringing the culprits to book, we will not relent while we appreciate our governor, Governor Gboyega Oyetola for his concern over the incident. He is a listening governor.”

“Find alternative routes to connect Oshogbo if you must pass,” the residents enjoined motorists plying the road.

Meanwhile, the Osun State Police Command PPRO, Yemisi Opalola, stated that the Command would get to the bottom of the matter by the end of today (Wednesday).

She made this known this morning on a Rave 917fm Franktalk radio programme with Femi Olanipekun.

She also said they’re JTF operatives and not SARS.
