Unconfirmed reports on social media suggest that no less than 3 persons have been reportedly killed after policemen allegedly opened fire on protesters in Ojoo area of Ibadan.
In a video sighted by our correspondent, a young man laid helplessly in a pool of his own blood as he was allegedly hit by a stray bullet from one of the police men.
Another video showed another man whose leg was badly disfigured after what looked like a bullet pierced the front of his leg.

Earlier in the day, some protesters had taken to social media to warn End SARS protesters not to go out for the protest in Ibadan as there had been intel that hoodlums were planning to take over the protest.
Meanwhile, it was more of the same in Jos as there were reports of hoodlums attacking the Jos terminus, looting shops and causing unrest.
Oh dear Lord… The anarchy has come to Jos😭 Please know that there has never been such violence in our previous protests… This is the work of our failed government who has resorted to thugs to silence the protests#EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeraNOW #JosEndSarsProtest pic.twitter.com/HJ6EOB5UlI

However, End SARS protesters have distanced themselves from the attack, stating that the peaceful protesters did not reach the areas under attack.
