OPC, Fulani clash claims 4 lives in Ajase Ipo – VELOXNEWS


From LAYI OLANREWAJU, Ilorin

 Kwara state police Command  has confirmed the death of at least four person  and several person’s injured at Kaara Market  in Ajase Ipo ,Irepodun Local Government Area of the state.

The Police in a statement signed and available by the Command’s spokesperson Okasanmi Ajayi wished

 to inform the  people of the State, especially people traversing along Ilorin Ajase-Ipo/Offa road that normalcy has been restored and the road  cleared of every barrier created as a result of the misunderstanding between some people suspected to be members of OPC and cow dealers in Kaara market of Ajase-Ipo which happened on Friday 12/8/2022  at 1830hrs.

According to him,”Information  recieved by Ajase-Ipo  Divisional Police headquarters was  to the effect that some  OPC members in a convoy of about twenty vehicles believed to have been coming from Oshogbo, Osun state, were passing through the Kaara market where a cow being led across the road by its handler broke the side mirror of one of the OPC vehicles,which  resulted in an argument that eventually escalated into an exchange of gun fire by both the  OPC members and the cow dealers in the market. Four lifeless bodies of  unidentified persons were recovered at the scene.

“The immediate deployment of detachments of police men  and teams of conventional police men to the scene by the Commissioner of police, Kwara State Police Command, Cp Tuesday Assayomo prevented the escalation and killings of more people.

“Meanwhile, the four unidentified dead bodies have been evacuated from the scene and deposited at the UITH mortuary, the injured taken .to the hospital in Ajase-Ipo for medical  treatment while,police men have been stationed at the scene to prevent further break down of law and order.

The Ajase Ipo Offa road  is now clear for movement of goods and services.Therefore any body who still goes there to cause lawlessness would be arrested and charged to court.

The CP therefore advises that law abiding citizens in the area and commuters should go about their lawful businesses without any fear of attack or harassment.”
