There was pandemonium in Osogbo this morning when people suspected to be thugs disrupted a protest organised by a group of Civil Societies Coalition for the Emancipation of Osun to gather support for Justice Folahanmi Oloyede, a serving judge of the state high court who petitioned the state house of assembly to investigate governor Rauf Aregbesola for alleged mismanagement of the state resources.
Our correspondent gathered that skirmishes between the protesters and the hoodlums took place shortly after the rally commenced.
The march which began at Ayetoro junction, about 9am had earlier witnessed a hitch when some people pelted the protesters with sachet water but the situation was later brought under control.
The protesters were joined by members of the Nigeria Union of Pensioners, in the march that was to terminate at the gate of the state House of Assembly.
Anti-riot policemen were brought in to put the situation under control.
