“I urge residents to remain calm because security officers have taken control of the situation,” added the governor.

In a message to NAN in Ibadan, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Adewale Osifeso, confirmed the attack.

However, neither the number of casualties nor the destruction of property were confirmed by Osifeso.

He stated that the inquiry was still ongoing and that a report on the occurrence would be released later.

According to him, on Saturday about 2310 hours, an unknown number of intruders with deadly weapons attacked Igangan Area in an attempt to cause disorder in the town.

“However, a mix of operational and tactical assets deployed to the site to restore normalcy repelled the unscrupulous elements.

“The issue is being continuously followed, and inquiries into the offenders are ongoing,” Osifeso said.
