The command’s Spokesman, DSP Adewale Osifeso recently stated this in a statement in Ibadan, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, investigations into the attack are currently ongoing and developments will be communicated to the public accordingly.
She then urged the public to promptly inform the police on future incidents of this nature for quick intervention.
Her words, “It was due to the face-off between members of Soludero, a local vigilante group, and some criminal elements around Sasa Area in Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State while the latter was on routine patrol on Saturday, at about 4.00pm.”
“Consequent upon this, the hoodlums, in their numbers, stormed Soludero’s presumed office, located at the premises of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, Amuludun 99.1 FM, Moniya, Ibadan, in a bid to launch a reprisal attack.”
“Preliminary investigation gathered from an on-the-spot assessment shows that upon the arrival of the hoodlums, they became agitated, as none of their targets was on sight.”
“Consequently, windscreens of the four vehicles parked within the premises were broken, along with the glass door at the entrance of the media outfit, inferring that the attack was not targeted directly at the media outfit but the vigilante group.”
