It was gathered that the heavily tamed solider fired gunshots in the air upon their arrival at the station. This caused panic in the area as residents scampered for safety. Policemen at the station were not left out in the melee as they fled their duty posts upon sighting the  soldiers.

A source close to the police post, who spoke in confidence revealed that some policemen had arrested some suspected cultists and kept them in the custody.

He said: “One of the suspected cultists that were arrested is related to a soldier. The man (soldier) came to the station in the afternoon on Tuesday to secure administrative bail for his brother.

“During interaction with the policemen, an argument ensued and the soldier was put inside the custody with the cultists.

“However, he had communicated his colleagues informing them that he had been detained in the police post.”

It was learnt that three soldiers, armed with knives and wearing camouflage vests, invaded the police post around 8pm to forcefully free their detained colleague.

Another source said: “The policemen started shooting to the air to scare the soldiers but when they observed that they were resolute, they fired bullets on the three soldiers which did not penetrate.

“Some policemen at the station fled their station as the soldiers chased them away from the station. The soldiers returned to the station and freed their colleague.”

Osun Police spokesman, SP Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the incident and said “arrests had been made.”

“Suspects who claimed they are military men from Ede took the suspected cultist away to Ede Military Barrack. We have made arrests,” the PPRO noted.
