According to Daily Post, "angry supporters took to the street in Arepo area of Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State to protest the killing of a 25-year-old pregnant woman identified as Damilola Fajana and some other persons in a clash between men of the Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, and some suspected vandals".

The protest which started on Friday through Saturday, according to the Daily Post reports, we gathered was led by the traditional ruler of the community himself, Oba Solomon Atanda .

It will be recalled that the pregnant woman and two other persons lost their lives in a clash between men of the Oodua People’s Congress who were employed by the Federal Government to oversee the protection of pipelines, and some youths suspected to be pipeline vandals.

Damilola, who was six months pregnant, fell to a stray bullet while in her car.

The angry protesters were said to have blocked the main entrance into the community for about one hour.

Some of the placards displayed reads, “We are under attack in Arepo”, “Arepo, no longer safe”, “and OPC limit your operations to the creek ”and“ President, save our souls in Arepo, please”.

The protesters called for a proper training for members of OPC as that will help to eradicate unnecessary bloodshed.
