Gunmen attack construction company in Owo

At approximately 9:45 p.m. on Wednesday, an assault took place at a construction site in the Owo council area of Ondo State, where two workers from the Road Construction Company, Craneburg, were injured.

Around one in the morning on Monday, there was an assault on the Okuta Elerin police station; however, the police had indicated that there were no casualties.

These attacks come roughly a month after 40 people were killed and over 30 injured in Owo’s St. Francis Church.

By the grace of God, the situation is under control, and I advise everyone to go about their normal businesses, said the Commander, who also serves as the Special Adviser to the State Governor on Security Matters.
