Reports had indicated that some suspected gunmen in the early hours of Saturday invaded the area and killed a number of cows, while leaving some others injured. The state’s Police Command through the Eleyele Divisional Police Officer had immediately mobilised to the scene and announced that its operatives were on the trail of the perpetrators, as investigations continued. A statement by the Oyo State Police Command on Saturday had equally indicated that the incident at Alafara Community had nothing to do with Yoruba/Hausa-Fulani clash, adding that relative peace has been restored to the area. A government delegation led by the Executive Assistant to the Governor on Security, CP Sunday Odukoya (rtd), visited the area, where it discovered that the suspected gunmen invaded the area in the early hours of Saturday and fired shots at the animals. Odukoya said on Sunday that when the incident was reported to Governor Makinde, he immediately directed the Ministry of Health to take over the treatment of the victims, while the government will compensate the owners for the killed cows. “His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde, on receiving the report of the incident, immediately deployed a team that worked with me to look at the situation. “We have since briefed His Excellency and he has also directed that the medical bills of the injured persons be fully picked by the government,” Odukoya said. The statement also indicated that the state government has offered to compensate the owners of the cattle, while the traditional ruler and chiefs in the area are collaborating with security agencies to unravel the situation.
