Special police unit have been deployed to reinforce security in Iwopin in the Ogun State waterside, following the recent militants attack on the base of marine police in the area.
During the attack last Thursday, the militants reportedly killed one policeman and injured others at the base, before fleeing through the waterways.
Ogun state police commissioner, Ahmed Ilyasu, visited the town last Friday for an on-the spot assessment of the situation.
Spokesman of the state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the police commissioner was accompanied on the visit by the deputy commissioner of police in-charge of operation.
Two weeks ago, police from the state police command repelled attack by gunmen who invaded the town and robbed a businessman.
