Immigration officers allegedly harass LG chair, others in Ibadan

There were sporadic gunshots at Agodi-Gate area of Ibadan on Wednesday after some immigration officers allegedly harassed a local government chairman and some of his aides.

The officers allegedly slapped Mr. Shuaib Yusuf Oladayo, Chairman of Ibadan Ibadan North Local government area, Wednesday afternoon.

The headquarters of Oyo State command of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) is close to the Ibadan North local government Secretariat.

It was gathered that trouble started when some youths who were protesting against the killing of a teenager in Ibadan stormed the area.

The youths blocked major streets in Ibadan

They blocked Mokola Road, parliament Road and Secretariat Road for some hours.

It was, however, gathered that the council boss and some of his close aides were harassed by the immigration officers who were at the area when the youths were protesting.

This then resulted into sporadic gunshots which rented the air for some minutes.

Efforts to ascertain what led to the altercation proved abortive as of the time of filing this report.

A source also revealed that some of the immigration officers were injured during the clash.

Public Relations Officer of NIS in Oyo State command, Mr. Olufemi Adetunji when contacted, noted that he cannot speak on the matter now.

Adetunji said, “I can’t talk on this tonight”.
