Osun First Lady's Convoy Attacked By Gunmen

Osun First Lady's Convoy Attacked By Gunmen

The convoy of the wife of Osun State Governor, Kafayat Oyetola, was reportedly attacked by gunmen on Friday evening.

Details on the attack were sketchy at the time of filing this report but sources in Owode, Ede, where it happened disclosed that Mrs Oyetola's convoy was headed to Osogbo and had gotten to Owode market when gunshots were heard at 8 pm.

A resident living in the area who gave his name as Alayande said a truck had created an obstruction of traffic when the convoy arrived at Owode market junction.

"It was while trying to make the truck driver move that altercation ensued between security men attached to the convoy.

"I heard several gunshots where I stood near the junction. It was dark but there was an altercation between security men and some people suspected to be hoodlums", he shared.

A text message was sent to the Osun police command spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, but she was yet to respond as of the time of this report.

The development was, however, confirmed by the Information Officer to the office of the First Lady, Oluwatunmise Iluyomade.
