Gunmen invade old Oyo National Park, kill one, injure many

Some gunmen reportedly invaded the old Oyo National Park in Saki East Local Government on Monday.

Sources who sent pictorial evidence to DAILY POST claimed that at least one person had been killed and two others abducted.

A source, who asked not to be named, further claimed that many people were also injured while one of the abductees managed to escape.

The names of the man killed during the invasion and the abducted victim have not been made public as of the time of filing this report on Monday.

However, the Public Relations Officer of the Oyo State Police Command, Adewale Osifeso, in a statement, avowed that no life was lost during the incident.

According to him, preliminary investigations revealed that some local vigilante groups around the location, while in pursuit of alleged abductors, engaged them in a gun duel, resulting in three of their members (vigilantes) sustaining injuries.

“Consequent on the above, it is important to note that no life was lost; the injured are presently responding to the medical intervention availed to them at the hospital,” the statement affirmed.
