Oyo state Governor, Seyi Makinde, had to go to Iwo Road, Ibadan to calm down #EndSARS protesters in the state.
For over two weeks now, Nigerians have been protesting against police brutality, though things took a violent turn when they were met with stiff resistance by security agents.
In the past 30hours, there have been widespread destruction and vandalism of government properties across the country.
In a video sighted by LailasNews, the Governor could be seen walking along the street with a huge crowd surrounding him.
Seyi Makinde is said to have stepped out to manage the security situation in the area.
