OSUN, Nigeria – Residents in Osogbo on Wednesday defiled the 24-hour curfew imposed by Osun State Government.

However, scores of soldiers stormed Olaiya, the convergence spot of the End SARS protesters with six Hilux vehicle, but were stopped by the protesters.

The military personnel, who addressed the protesters, were without badge or name tag on them.

OgeneAfrican had reported that the state government had on Tuesday imposed a 24-hour curfew on the residents of the state.

Some protesters and concerned youths trooped to the streets as early as 7:30 am to mount roadblocks on major roads across the metropolis.

OgeneAfrican learnt that End SARS protesters also resumed their protest at Olaiya junction around 8:am despite the curfew imposed.

Addressing the protesting youths, one of the troops who had earlier joined the protesters with the Nigerian flag in his hand said they were not on ground to launch attack on the protesters.

He said there was the need for the protesters to obey the executive order of the state governor, Gboyega Oyetola emphasising that they will not attack the protesters.

As at the time of filing this report, no security agent is on ground at the scenes of the protests.
