BREAKING Yoruba Nation Agitators Hijack FRCN Radio Station In Ibadan, Arrested
Less than 24 hours to the May 29 handover date, five suspected Oodu’a Nation agitators reportedly hijacked Amuludun 99.1 FM in Ibadan, Oyo State of the South Western Nigeria.
The suspects who took over the radio station in the early hours of Sunday have been arrested.
The radio station, owned by the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), according to reports, was hijacked around 6 am on Sunday.
The suspects invaded the station with various forms of charms.
It was gathered that they collected all their valuables including their mobile handsets thereby making it impossible for them to communicate with the outside world.
The alleged agitators took over the station and broadcasted live.
The leader of the team, as reliably gathered, headed straight to the broadcast studio and was on air for almost one hour.
The broadcast; “We are being sent to inform the people that Yoruba people have been freed. Henceforth, no more to Police and Army harassment. We are hereby calling for the release of our brothers and sisters that are serving jail term.
“We are neither here to harass nor injure anybody. We are here for peace.”
Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a Yoruba of the South West, is due to be sworn in tomorrow in Abuja as Nigerian President.
