As the COVID-19 lock down persist and may be extended by government due to the rise in the cases across the federation, a video shared online, show the moment some agitated Ogun state residents defy social distancing as they took protest to Government House and Oba’s Palace over hunger amid Coronavirus pandemic.

Within Nigeria gathered that some agitated residents marched to the Government House in Isale Igbein area of Abeokuta, but they were reportedly dispersed by policemen from Ibara Divisional Police Headquarters, as they were made to realize that the Governor was not present.

After Govt House, they moved to the palace of the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, saying they were hungry and tired of the lock down.

In the video, some of the protesters were seen rolling on the floor to demonstrate to the Alake that their means of livelihood had been truncated.

Oba Adedokun, however, assured the people that he would get more relief packages from donors to cushion the effects of the lock down.

He said they would be informed through the radio when the food items are ready, adding that he would communicate their message to the government.
