The protest had in procession over 100 select youths across the state including ex-state and local government executive members of the youth council and uniform affiliated organizations with the patrol vehicle of the Nigeria Police Force providing security. The event kicked off at the Youth House, MKO Abiola Stadium, Kuto, and was terminated at the Governor’s Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

Ayelaagbe noted that it had become a daily occurrence in the border communities including Owode, Ilaro, Ayetoro, Ipokia/ Idiroko, and its axis for men of the Nigeria Customs to kill and injure innocent citizens unlawfully under the guise of checkmating the activities of smugglers.
