Osun State Security Network also known as Amotekun Corps on Tuesday said some hoodlums allegedly working for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party invaded its office at Isale Osun area where they attacked personnel of the security outfit.

According to a statement by the spokesperson of the corps, Yusuf Idowu, the hoodlums wielding dangerous weapons, after laying siege on the Amotekun office, attacked two personnel.

The perpetrators were said to have covered their faces to prevent them from being recognised by the people.

The statement read in part, “They fired a close-range bullet to one Amotekun personnel, identified as Adebisi and the Field Commander of Osun Amotekun Corps, Comrade Amitolu Shittu.

“They asked what that the Chairperson of Osogbo South LCDA, Hon Bolaji Jimoh a.k.a Gbogbolomo was doing in the office of National Population Commission that shares compound with the Amotekun Office at that time.

“The hoodlums who tried to forcefully bring out the chairperson of Osogbo South LCDA were prevented by the Amotekun personnel.

“The thugs came out from a PDP-branded Sienna vehicle with masks on their faces and attacked Amotekun men with guns, cutlasses, broken bottles and inflicted injuries on the personnel.

“The field commander of Osun Amotekun Corps, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, who came to settle the issue was also attacked. We appealed to all political parties in the state to see Amotekun as an outfit that belongs to all.”
