Many Killed In OPC, Amotekun, Herdsmen Clash In Oyo


Many persons have been reportedly killed in a clash between Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC ) Amotekun, Operation Burst, Soludero and a group of herdsmen.

The cause of the clash which occurred at Iwerele, Iwajowa local government area of Oyo State is still sketchy as of press time.

However, it was reliably gathered that the clash was caused as a result of an attack on a titled chief in the community.

The source said a group of herdsmen had invaded a farm in the community with their cattle and grazed on it, a situation which led to the demise of the owner of the farm during the argument.

It was further gathered that combined security operatives of Operation Burst, OPC, Amotekun and Soludero were informed to restore peace in the area but they were allegedly ambushed by herdsmen.

The number of those killed is yet to be ascertained.

As of press time, all efforts to get the state Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso’s reaction was not successful as he was not picking up his call nor responding to text messages sent to his mobile number.
