Security forces, including naval and police personnel, are still maintaining security in the communities attacked by gunmen on the Ogun State’s border with Ondo State.
The gunmen attacked Liyewu and Yandagbe in the Ogun Waterside, last Tuesday night, shooting sporadically, forcing people in the communities to flee their homes
Spokesman of the Ogun State police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told Rockcity FM that policemen deployed to the communities have restored peace and that normalcy had returned.
Oyeyemi further stated that so far no arrest has been made, adding that the police and other security agents deployed have been very diplomatic in their approach.
The police image maker dismissed reports that some of the gunmen who carried out the attacks were sponsored by a local government chairman in Ogun State, saying there is no evidence yet to support the claim.
