According to the police spokesman, the incident happened in a village near Wasinmi, a community along Ife/Ibadan expressway in the state.

Hours after that unfortunate incident, Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari tasked State Governors to revive security committees at community level, saying security issues must be “tackled appropriately at every level.”

The President assured that new Service Chiefs are working to ensure no room is left for criminals and terrorists to operate.

State Governors were also charged to resuscitate local security architecture comprising Traditional and Community Leaders, the police, Business Representatives, Representatives of non-indigenes, and other communal interest groups.
