Police debunk alleged invasion of Oyo school by suspected herdsmen


IBADAN- The Police Command in Oyo State has debunked an  alleged invasion of suspected herdsmen in a Community Secondary School in Alaropo Nla in Orire Local Government Area of the state on Thursday.

It would be recalled that reports alleged that  suspected herdsmen with their cattle had invaded  the school farm on Thursday morning,  injuring some of the school teachers and students who wanted to prevent their cattle from grazing.

Speaking on the incident in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  in Ibadan, the command’s spokesman, SP Adewale Osifeso debunked the incident.

Osifeso said that nothing of such incident happened in the school and nobody was injured as being alleged.

He said the herdsmen were peacefully grazing  their cattle outside the vicinity of the school and people began to raise false alarm.

Osifeso said  there was peace in the area and the state still enjoyed  the peace witnessed during the recently concluded 2023 General elections.

He said the Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Adebowale Williams had sent the Divisional Police Officer in the area to the place,  who confirmed the incident did not happen and  the area was  peaceful and calm.

Osifeso urged  the media and public to always scrutinise  their source of news in order not to create unnecessary fear in the society.
