Police Locks up soldiers for invading Osogbo headquarters

Some armed soldiers were arrested on Monday, 28th October, after besieging the Osun Command headquarters of the Nigeria Police Force in Osogbo.


Creating tension in the area on Monday afternoon, some of the soldiers had entered into the command’s premises before others were stopped at the gate, according to some traders with shops near the police headquarters.


The traders around the state command hurriedly closed their shops for fear of unknown as the soldiers were wielding arms and did not want to be caught in any eventualities.

A trader, who simply identified himself as Segun, said that about 28 soldiers were seen at the entrance of the command engaging policemen at the gate in hot argument around 12:30pm. “Later, a senior police officer with the name Edward Ebuka, intervened and prevented the soldiers from entering the command.”


“The soldiers, although, left the area, but they never seem satisfied with the situation, because I believe some of them were likely detained by the police,” he added.


However, a police source, who preferred anonymity disclosed that three soldiers that had already entered into the command’s premises were arrested and disarmed by the policemen, while others left.


The source added that the mission of the soldiers in the area might not be unconnected with the arrest and detention of a soldier arrested in Osogbo on Saturday, 26th October, for an offence that could not be immediately ascertained.
