Angry youths under the auspices of Odigbo Local Government Indigenous Youth have shut the Council Secretariat over alleged imposition of a Secretary, Mr Tosin Obamoyegun. on the Council.

The youths who carried placards with different inscriptions barricaded the council main gate and tied them it  palm fonts.

Speaking with newsmen, the Coordinator of the youths, Comrade Adebayo Lawrence said the people of the council area had endured enough imposition under this democratic dispensation.

Comrade Lawrence maintained that they had to reject the imposition of the Secretary to the local government whom he claimed was from Okitipupa Council area and not Odigbo.

Another youth, Miss Ebunoluwa Adefisayo said indigenes of Odigbo council were being short changed in positions of authority hence the need for the peaceful protest.

Reacting, the Police Area Commander, Ore Area Command, Olusegun Ajamolaya said his men had been drafted to the secretariat to ensure the protest was not hijacked or turned violent.
