3 pistols, 6 Cutlasses, two axes, and two Motorcycles recovered as youths engage police

The operatives from the Inspector General of Police Special Response team in Abuja, in the wee hours of Saturday, arrested a traditional chief and eight others in Odo Owa town – in Irepodun local government of Kwara state – over the destruction of Fulani settlement (Gaa Fulani).

The Police team also arrested six of the youths who repelled the arrest attacks while three pistols, six cutlasses, two axes, and two motorcycles were recovered from them.

It was additionally gathered by the Vanguard news that other youths who escaped with bullet wounds were said to have been taken to traditional homes to remove the bullets.

The arrest was instigated by an alleged cell break in Iloffa Police station about three weeks ago where some set of hoodlums set six suspects arrested in connection with the burning of the Herdsmen Camp were set free.

It was reliably gathered sources that the police team stormed the two Communities in the wee hours of Saturday to pick up the suspects who allegedly participated in the destruction and burning of Fulani camps in Kajola, Odo-Owa, and a Hotel in Omu-Aran in April this year.

As a result of the arrest, the traditional markets in Iloffa, headquarter of Oke-Ero local government council, and its neighbouring Community, Odo-Owa could not hold on Saturday.

Two of the suspects including a Chief according to the sources were picked up while sleeping in their homes in Odo-Owa while the rest seven were arrested in Omu-Aran.
