Armed hoodlums assault five
Policemen, Amotekun operatives attacked at Adeleke’s inauguration
No fewer than five men of Osun State Security Network codenamed Amotekun were assaulted by suspected hoodlums on the field of Osogbo Township Stadium, during the inauguration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as Governor.
The Amotekun operatives joined other security agencies on the open field of the stadium beside the podium to maintain peace and order.
After the arrival of Adeleke, hoodlums started to hit the operatives with cutlasses and sticks before some Policemen secured them.
Few minutes after the attack, the hoodlums regrouped and attacked the operatives.
Confirming the attack, the Field Commander of Amotekun, Comrade Amitolu Shittu said: “Five of our men were attacked at the venue of swearing-in. The hoodlums that attacked our men are criminals that are involved in robbery, drug, stealings among others which we have arrested their gang members at a point.
“They are only hiding under political party to launch such attack on us. It has nothing to do with politics. We will not be intimidated by such attack, we will get rid of them with the support of government.”
Two policemen were also reportedly injured during attacks by hoodlums on three motor parks. Also injured were several residents during the attack.
