It was gathered that the hoodlums had gone to claim the possession of an expanse of land, which is some distance away from Gbayunre Market, the community’s main market.

The pandemonium was said to have disrupted commercial activities in the market, while many traders were forced to close their shops.

In the ensuing confusion, a resident, Lateef Jimoh, was said to have been hit by a stray bullet as people scampered to safety.

A resident, Dolapo Tijani, explained that Jimoh was rushed to a private hospital in the neighbourhood, while policemen from the Onipanu Police Station responded to the incident, adding that no arrest was made.

Tijani said the community had been contending with attacks from the hoodlums over the past two months, adding that the matter took a turn for the worse on Saturday.

He said, “Earlier that day, around 4am, we heard gunshots. We could not sleep. Around 2pm, the hoodlums came again. Three of them wore camouflage used by security men, shooting indiscriminately. The bullets hit a resident (Jimoh). We are living in fear. They are omo oniles (land grabbers). We have been on it for over two months now and many people have moved out of the community.”

Another resident, who gave her name only as Faith, stated that Jimoh was at the market to charge his phone at a shop when violence broke out.

Faith, who is also a trader at the market, said many shops were still closed for fear of sudden attacks from the hoodlums.
