Some armed soldiers, on Monday, invaded the Osun State Police Command headquarters in Osogbo and broke the gate and caused panic in the area.
According to some traders near the police headquarters, three of the soldiers had already entered the premises before the others were stopped at the gate.
A trader, who identified herself simply as Nkechi, claimed that many of those with business in the area had to hurriedly close for the day for fear of being caught in the crossfire
She told our correspondent that about 25 armed soldiers were seen at the gate of the command headquaters engaging the policemen manning the area in a hot argument around 1pm.

“Later, a senior police officer with the name tag, Edward Ebuka, intervened and the soldiers left the area,” Nkechi stated.
A top security source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told our correspondent that three soldiers, who entered the premises, were arrested and disarmed by the policemen, while the others left.
He said the mission of the soldiers in the area might not be unconnected with the arrest and detention of a soldier on Saturday for an offence that could not be immediately ascertained.
The source stated, “Those who came had planned to disarm our men at the gate. A soldier is being held at the State Criminal Investigation Bureau since Saturday for an offence I don’t know.
“I think those soldiers, who came to the command headquarters, wanted to forcefully free him. Presently, four soldiers are being held here.”
When contacted for a reaction, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Folasade Odoro, neither confirmed nor denied the incident.

NCDC reveals why Nigeria’s COVID-19 cases are low

Published

By

The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has disclosed that the low number of the COVID-19 cases in the country is due to the lesser amount of samples collected across the states.

Chikwe Ihekweazu, NCDC Director-General, stated this during the Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday.

Ihekweazu, who was represented by Mrs. Elsie Ilori, NCDC Head of Surveillance and Epidemiology Department, stated that the testing labs were underutilized because the states were not collecting enough samples for the laboratory to test.

“As mentioned earlier since the Sallah break we have had some of our confirmed cases have been very low compared to what we’ll be having before, but this isn’t because the numbers are getting low but because we are not collecting enough samples.

“If you notice, the number of samples collected during Salah was very low, and we believe it was because of the festival season some labs even went on break, it should not have been.

“So we are working with the states to quickly address this so that we do not have this kind of situation again,” he said.

According to the Ihekweazu, we sometimes know when we look at stigmatization, people say they do not want to go to testing sites because they’ll be stigmatized.

“But I mean, this isn’t something to be ashamed of, we have just had an example amongst us, it can happen to anybody.

So, please let us come out and be tested.”
