The peace at the Idiroko border was disrupted on Saturday, May 29, 2021 when some agitators went to the border post at the Ipokia Local Government Area of Ogun State to open it forcefully after all the security agents ran for their dear lives for safety.
Denying attacks on any Customs officer, Oloyede said the situation was under control.
“There was no attack on our patrol bases or checkpoints. Those guys were just doing their own. They tried to attack one patrol point, but it was repelled. The situation is under control. There is no problem,” he said.
Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Yoruba nation agitation, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, in a video commended the actions of the agitators.
He accused the Federal Government of shutting down the land borders in the South-West while those in the North were open.
