At the youth Congress meeting, Ijebu-igbo on Saturday, May 29, 2021, the congress of Ijebu Igbo Youths, President Comrade Adesanya said that he was invited by the Police and was told that a petition has been made against the Congress of ijebu-igbo youth leadership, claiming that they have planned to cause mayhem and that they should be arrested.

He briefed all sons and daughters present on Positions of things as regards Dangote 50 years natural exploration at ijebu-igbo which was signed by some elders of the city in 2016 on a 5years renewable term.
