Normalcy appears to have been restored in the Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State after a violent protest that rocked the town yesterday over scarcity of fuel and the new naira notes.
Banks and business premises were attacked and set ablaze, cars looted and burnt, as shops were forced to remain under lock and key.
According to the state Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba, who led his men and soldiers to the scene, thirty suspects have been arrested in connection with the unrest.
Most affected was Oba Erinwole Road where about seven branches of commercial banks were attacked and ATM machines vandalised and looted, leaving the Sagamu neighbourhood as a shadow of itself.
