The minister, who hails from the town, said he was in a meeting with Oyewumi and some chiefs when aggrieved youth invaded the palace.

Dare said from the way the “intruders” behaved, it was clear that they were not part of the #EndSARS protest which started late last week.

He added that security operatives from Ibadan and Ilorin were now on ground to protect the town and stop “criminal elements.”
