A protest broke out in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital on Wednesday, August 18, after members of the Amotekun corp allegedly killed a 15-year-old boy.

Some online sources claim the boy, whose identity could not be ascertained, was shot dead by some Amotekun Corps who were chasing some armed robbery suspects.

The boy, said to be an apprentice in a printing shop, was said to have stayed with his boss to work overnight on some project and was sent to go and buy food when he was shot.

Scores of angry youths in the capital city conveyed the corpse as they protested along the Agodi Secretariat Road.
