Witnesses said the agitators had descended on a vehicle conveying some personnel of the Nigerian Army, disarming one of the soldiers.

The attackers allegedly got hold of a rifle belonging to the soldiers and escaped with it.

“Some Yoruba nation agitators holding a rally around Oju Ore allegedly attacked some military men in their vehicle. In the process, they disarmed a soldier and carted away with his rifle,” a witness who simply identified himself as Mayowa, said.

Sources that the Army had immediately mobilised to Ota in order to arrest the situation.

Residents said the heavy military presence caused panic among the people as many scampered for safety.

Also human and vehicular movements were affected for hours before calm was eventually restored.

The Police Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident on Friday, adding that the command is still investigating the matter.

Oyeyemi said though no arrest has been made, those behind the incident would not go unpunished.

“We are on the matter. We heard it that they (Yoruba Nation agitators) attacked some soldiers at Ota area. So we are working in collaboration with the Nigerian Army to get to the root of that matter. We have not made any arrest, but we are on it. There’s no casualty,” Oyeyemi said.
