It was gathered that the gunmen killed two people at Igangan in Ibarapa North local government area, while one person, the Amotekum commandant was killed in Igboora in Ibarapa Central local government area.

One of the residents said, “The people thought it was customs officers until two people were killed.

“Local hunters mobilised to the area and they fled through Igboora.

“Amotekun officers in Igangan who were alerted laid siege for the fleeing gunmen who later killed the commander.”

The Oyo state Amotekun command is yet to confirm the incident.
