He noted some of the protesters were  wounded, by the gun men ,but his Nephew and some of the agitators, managed to escape from the scene,and have since,gone into hiding,for safety of their lives.

"Ezekiel was one the coordinators,that organised the demonstrations and since then ,he had become the target of these unknown men who vowed to stop at nothing,in their search for him" the farmer added

Chief Medahunsi explained that uptil, his nephew's house at Ode Irele has been playing host to weapons wielding  strange men,who once  visited the house, vandalising valuables, which exact worth could still not be ascertained.

"Ezeliel has since been moving from one place to another, as reports continue to reach us that some people are seriously on his trail. I don't want him assassinated or humiliated like their leader, Sunday Igboho, whose faith is still hanging in the balance" he told newsmen.
