Hoodlums Attack Traders In Osogbo
Suspected hoodlums this morning laid siege on Sabo Area of Osogbo and injured some traders as well as others in the vicinity.
Although policemen had been deployed to the scene, gunshots fired by the hoodlums were still heard a few metres away from where the policemen were stationed.
A resident of the area who did not disclose his name said the attack started late yesterday.
He said the hoodlums had claimed to be mourning a colleague with a candlelight procession before they suddenly launched attacks on traders.
The resident explained that a yet-to-be-identified trader was allegedly killed in the process, adding that the hoodlums also this morning continued their onslaught and attacked more people in the area.
