The Kwara State Police Command has successfully repelled a reprisal attack on its headquarters when some gunmen, suspected to be cultists, invaded the formation.
Naija News reports that the Kwara State Police spokesperson revealed that the attack was carried out on Friday.
According to the command, the attack came after it had put a situation under control earlier around Surulere, Baboko and Oja Tuntun areas of the state capital.
He said, “We had gone to put a situation under control this morning involving two cult groups and we made some arrests.
“These boys mobilised themselves and began to attack the police because one of them jumped inside a canal in Surulere while trying to evade arrest.
“We called the Fire Service to retrieve the body but the boys came to disrupt them but the police were able to retrieve the corpse from the cult guys later.”
The police spokesperson also added that the police had launched an investigation into the matter to unravel the mystery.
This online newspaper reports that there have been cases of cult groups clashes recently, especially in Ilorin, the state capital.
