Police probe Osun community tragedy

The police in Osun has resolved to probe the circumstances behind the killing of an unidentified man in Iwo, an outskirt of the state metropolis.

This is as the Command also confirmed that one person has been arrested in connection with the incident. 

A statement released on Tuesday by the Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Umar Abba, and signed by the spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, noted that the police regretted that the death came after repeated warnings to members of the public, especially hunters and other local security outfits on the use of firearms.

"The Osun State Police Command is miffed with the report/news of the shooting/killing of a man in Iwo despite continuous warnings/sensitization of members of the public especially hunters and other local security outfits on the use of guns (firearms).

"The Command is using this medium to appeal to members of the public especially the family of the deceased and residents of Iwo to remain calm and not to take law into their hands as the Command has set up a team of crack detectives to investigate the circumstances that led to the shooting/killing of the man in the town. 

"Meanwhile, the suspect has since been identified, arrested and presently in the police custody."

The Command also cautioned members of the public on the need to exercise caution and abide by the rules governing the use of firearms at all times.
