Armed men attack Oyo State Government Secretariat

Some armed intruders have laid siege on the Oyo State Government Secretariat early on Saturday, attempting to enter the Governor’s Office and the state House of Assembly complex.

An eyewitness account said the men dressed in military camouflage covered their faces with masks and scarfs.

People around the secretariat environment heard gunshots as security agents engaged the suspected hoodlums.

Other eyewitnesses say it took the combined effort of policemen on duty at the Governor’s Office, operatives of the South-West Security Network known as Amotekun, and other security reinforcements to stop the intruders.

The intruders were said to have arrived at the secretariat in buses hoisting a flag suspected to belong to some agitators.

A heavy deployment of security operatives including soldiers has taken over the area, barricading all entry and exit points to the secretariat while traffic has been diverted away from the scene.

It is, however, not clear if nay arrests have been made..
