The athletes who had arrived at the stadium for training were turned back by the Police.
Many of the athletes were stranded in and around the stadium gate at the popular Taiwo Ibrahim road in Ilorin.
Some of them who spoke with NAN questioned why sportsmen would be denied access to facilities to train.
NAN investigations revealed that the police were ordered to block the stadium gate against the #RevolutionNow protest.
