Three people have been allegedly killed during a violent attack on the palace of Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Jimoh Oyewumi Ajagungbade, by some angry youths on Sunday.

The attack was said to have been carried out on the palace of the king by the youths as a result of the attitude of the monarch to the death of one Isiaka Jimoh who was shot dead during the EndSARS protest that took place in the town.

The attackers also disrupted a meeting between the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare and the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi.

However, security operatives rescued the minister, the monarch, and other chiefs who were at the meeting.

While confirming the report, the minister in a series of tweets lamented that the hoodlums destroyed properties in the palace.
