Some Ibadan residents on Monday trooped out  in large numbers  to protest the current state of  living, appealing to the federal government for quick intervention.

The protest started around 7am at the Mokola area of Ibadan where many youths converged with  placards  bearing various inscriptions such as “end food hike and inflation’”among others to show their grievances.

There was heavy presence of  security personnel  who were on standby to ensure that the protest was not hijacked by hoodlums.
