Yoruba Nation Agitators arrested for Hijacking Radio Station in Ibadan


In the early hours of Sunday, five suspected Oodua Nation Agitators were apprehended for allegedly hijacking Amuludun 99.1 FM in Ibadan.

Amuludun 99.1 FM, owned by the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), was reportedly taken over by the agitators around 6 am on Sunday.

The suspects gained entry into the station using various forms of charms.

According to reports, the agitators confiscated the personal belongings of the radio station staff, including their mobile phones, rendering them unable to communicate with the outside world.

The alleged agitators seized control of the station and conducted a live broadcast.

The team leader reportedly headed straight to the broadcast studio and remained on air for nearly an hour.
