Other places were pockets of protests are ongoing, according to sources, include Gbopa, Ologuneru, Apete, Sango, Poly road, Mokola and Iwo Road axis

The protesters already blocked the Eleyele/Eruwa road, making movement impossible for residents.

Thousands of other residents, apparently unprepared for another round of protests, were shocked to run into the road blockages.

The Eleyele/Eruwa road is the major road that leads Ibadan to Ibarapa zone.

The blockage of the road has created heavy traffic in Eleyele, Ologuneru and adjourning areas.

It was gathered that the transporters said they were angry over the non-availability of cash as well as, the rejection of the old N200, N500 and N1,000 notes by passengers and some fueling stations.

As of the time of filing this report, there is serious apprehension across the city.

Efforts to get the reaction of Oyo Police Command were not fruitful as of the time of this report.
