The OPC members were released from the police custody at Iyaganku command around 5.40 pm on Tuesday.
Their release followed the intervention of the Oyo State government and the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams.
The three detained OPC members were released in the presence of State Coordinator of Oodua People’s Congress in Oyo State, Comrade Rotimi Oguntunde, aka Olumo; Special Adviser to Oyo State Governor on Culture and Tourism, Hon. Ademola Akeem Ige and counsel for the OPC.
