When contacted, Funmi Odunlami, the state police image maker, verified the occurrence but stated that three people were hurt during a shootout in the town. Odunlami added that she was unable to determine whether the attackers were terrorists or merely bandits.
She said “Tonight, there was a shooting incident at Craneburg Construction Company Owo, Policemen are currently at the arena, victims have been taken to Hospital and they are in stable condition.
” We can not establish the casualty figure now and we also cannot say it was a terrorists’ attack with the use of explosives devices but tomorrow (Thursday) morning, the EOD men of the command would go to the scene.”
Additionally, Odunlami urged the populace not to panic because everything was in order.
