Unknown assailants slaughtered two guards at Ogun filling station

Unknown assailants on Sunday night slaughtered two guards attached to the Total filling station around Delabo Junction, Ilisan Remo in Ikenne local government area of the state.

The two night guards said to be Igbo but residents of Ilisan Remo were said to have been discovered in the pool of their blood early morning of yesterday.

Our Correspondent gathered that the assailants allegedly took nothing away from the filing station fuelling the suspicion that it might be a pure case of assassination.

The incident is said to have caused some palpable fear in the town coming on the heels of reported Hausa clash with police on Friday.

It would be recalled that the Hausa residents in the town had on Friday clashed with the police for refusing to hand over to them two armed robbery suspects who attempted to steal a motorcycle belonging to one of them.
The Hausas had demanded that the two suspects be handed over to them so that they could deal them fatal blow of jungle justice despite the police assuring that the robbery suspects would get the deserved treatment under the law.

The police had however rebuffed this primitive attempt but the Hausas had reportedly insisted to have their ways hurling stones and sticks at the police officers. The police were said to have been forced to fire shots into the air to disperse the rampaging Hausa youths.

Our Correspondent gathered that the police had to later call for reinforcement from other formations in the state to quell this crisis while some leaders in the town both from Hausa and Yoruba community also promptly intervened to restore normalcy in the town.

Efforts to get reaction from the Police Public Relations Officer for the state command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi proved abortive as calls made to his lines were not connecting while he was yet to react to the message sent to him on WhatsApp as at the time of filling this report
