Palpable tension in Ilesa, Osun State on Tuesday morning as some suspected ‘Yahoo Boys’ staged a protest following the incessant arrest of their colleagues by the security operatives.
The suspected Yahoo Boys were said to have blocked the Osogbo/Ilesa expressway in the state, thereby halting vehicular movement.
The protesters, were said to have stormed the Ilesa West Local Government Secretariat, Ilesa and made bonfire at the entrance of the Ilesa Council office which was by the road.
Due to the road blockage, motorists plying the expressway were said to have been stranded.
While some of the road users, who know the terrain, made u-turn for other routes.
Western Post gathered that the protest was as a result of the recent arrest by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
They alleged that the EFCC officials recently stormed the hotel they lodged in and arrested some of their colleagues.
