Yoruba Nation militias arrested while invading Oyo state government house

In a significant development on Saturday, twenty individuals suspected to be affiliated with the Yoruba Nation Agitation Group were apprehended by security forces following their alleged involvement in the invasion of the Oyo State Government Secretariat, Agodi, located in the state capital of Ibadan.

The incident unfolded earlier in the day when a group of Yoruba nation agitators stormed the secretariat premises, seizing control of certain areas within the complex.

Responding swiftly to the situation, the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Hazmat Adebola, directed a specialized investigative team, headed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the State Criminal Investigation Department, to delve into the circumstances surrounding the intrusion.

According to a statement released by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, the suspects were reportedly clad in military camouflage attire and armed with an assortment of weapons, including cutlasses, pump-action rifles, cartridges, and various charms. Additionally, they were found in possession of an O’dua nation agitation flag.

Osifeso emphasized that the intervention of law enforcement, supported by intelligence-driven tactics, led to the successful containment of the situation. The arrested individuals were apprehended in possession of firearms, ammunition, protective gear, and other incriminating items, highlighting the gravity of the situation.

Labeling the actions of the suspects as criminal, unpatriotic, and tantamount to treasonable felony and terrorism, Osifeso assured the public of the commitment of the police force to safeguarding lives and property. He urged residents to remain vigilant and cooperate with authorities in efforts to eliminate criminal elements seeking to promote divisive agendas.

As the investigation progresses, the police spokesperson pledged to provide further updates on the matter, underscoring the determination of law enforcement agencies to uphold the rule of law and maintain peace and order within the state.
