The protesters, according to reports stormed the LG Secretariat on Tuesday in multiple vehicles and caused stampede.

Our state correspondent learnt that, a businessman who owned a Bet9Nija centre in the area, had invited the police to arrest his salesgirl, who allowed a customer to place N100,000 bet on credit.
