According to reports, some youths in Igangan, Ibarapa North local government area of Oyo state on Friday, January 15 set fire to a cow market, that was previously shut down in Igangan town.

According to the source, the youths warned Alhaji Saliu Abdulkadir and his children to ensure that the issues of insecurity stop permanently in the area.
