Protest Rocks Ogun As Operatives Allegedly Kill Two Traders

Angry traders at Omolore Market, on Thursday protested the alleged shooting of two of their colleagues by operatives of the Special Anti- Robbery Squad (SARS).

The traders, predominantly Hausa, selling onions, pepper, tomatoes, yam and fruits, allegedly went violent, smashing objects, including the operational vehicle of the Ogun State – owned Television broadcasting station and many other property in sight.

According to multiple sources who shared similar video footage from the scene of the incident, the officials were said to have chased some youths suspected to be internet fraudsters also known as Yahoo Boys and fired at them when they ran into the midst of the traders, killing two traders.

The traders in Olomore market were soon joined by those from nearby Lafenwa market, who got wind of the shooting and took to the Lafenwa – Abeokuta – expressway, disrupting traffic flow.

One of the eyewitnesses, while recording the incident could be heard speaking in Yoruba language; “Olomore is a hot as Maiduguri right now!“Hausa people have gone furious! have killed two of them.”
