Protesters on Tuesday have vandalised automated teller machines in a bank premises in Abeokuta as demonstrations over the scarcity of the new naira notes and fuel in Ogun State.
The protesters, who lamented the pains and agonies they were passing through, vandalised the Sapon Branch of the First Bank Plc in Abeokuta to vent their anger and grievances.
The protesters also made bonfires with disused tyres on major streets of the State capital, particularly in Aladesanmi, Fajol and Somorin in Obantoko area of Abeokuta, where they were also chanting anti-government songs.
When contacted, the Ogun Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the protest, but noted that the situation was under control.
Oyeyemi, who maintained that the State Police Command was still studying the situation, further disclosed that the protest was a simultaneous one across the State and that it would be too hasty to comment on the situation.
The PPRO also denied that Police bullet killed any of the protesters anywhere in the State.
However, a viral video shows a resident in pains after being shot on the hand and was being attended to by good samaritans in the ensuing pandemonium.
