The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that athletes, who had arrived at the stadium for training, were turned back by the Police.

Many of the athletes were stranded and remained around the stadium gate at the popular Taiwo Ibrahim road in Ilorin.

Some of them, who spoke to NAN, wondered why sportsmen would be denied access to the facility to train.

NAN investigations revealed that the police were ordered to block the stadium gate against the #RevolutionNow protest.

The facility was reportedly said to be the meeting point for the march organized by the presidential candidate of African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, in the 2019 general elections.
