Heavily armed security operatives on Saturday morning took over strategic parts of Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital ahead of a today’s rally by the Yoruba Nation agitators.
Reporters who moved round popular places in Ado-metroplis observed that scores of security officials were stationed at different locations.
The security personnel included men of the Nigerian Police Force, Joint Task Force, the Department of State Service (DSS), Amotekun, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
At about 9:15am, the combined security operatives who were heavily armed were stationed around the popular Fajuyi park, the venue for the self-determination rally.
Security officials were also seen in front of the Ekiti Government House, Adunni Olayinka Bus stop, Oke-sa interjection and other strategic points in the state capital.
The agitators were not deterred by the presence of the heavily armed security operatives as they throng the venue of the rally in their large numbers.
