A catastrophic event during the protest featured trucks being set ablaze in Ado-Ekiti. There was also the case of an alleged gang rape of three ladies in Fajuyi area of Ado-Ekiti.

Also, a police station in Ikere was burned down together with four patrol vehicles.

The restriction was to commence 10p.m on Tuesday and expected to lapse at 10p.m on Wednesday.

Residents resumed activities on Thursday.

However, Fayemi announced on Thursday that the curfew would be extended in every part of the state until further notice.
