Newsmen, who monitored the commencement of the order around 6:45pm in Illorin, reports that men and officers of the Nigeria Police barricaded major roads in Ilorin metropolis.

A visit by newsmen around Ilorin metropolis revealed that Unity Road, ‘A’ Division, Muritala Muhammed Road, Offa Garage Roundabout extended to Olunlade among other places, which were barricaded.
