The State Governor, Mr. Oyetola went to meet with the protesters and addressed them. While delivering a speech, he was attacked by those he called political thugs.
Two people died on the same day. The protesters accused the government and his convoy. The claim was met with a denial from the government. The government claimed that death had nothing to do with his convoy.
Tension has gripped the whole city. A market close to the Post Office got burnt. The protesters did not claim responsibility. Eye witnesses said that it was tension that probably led any of the shop owners to have been careless with whatever could spark fire.

One of protesters was kidnapped by unknown men. Afterwards, a Facebook post said he was an armed robber.
He was released on the same day after being tortured. Follow this thread for more info on this;
Information reaching me now is that this guy, Ayomide (AY) was allegedly kidnapped today in Oke Fia, Osogbo by politic thugs. The protesters are worried that he might be killed before daybreak and that would lead to more bloodshed.
