How militants attacked Ogun deputy governor’s entourage

Niger Delta militants

Officials of the Nigerian Army and the Police Force were on Monday engaged in a 20-minute gun battle with militants when the Ogun Deputy Governor, Yetunde Onanuga, visited the Ebute-Ibafo in Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state.

Also on the team were the state Deputy Commissioner of Police, Bello Makwashi, the state Director, Department of State Services, Kabiru Sanni, the Brigade Commander, 35 Artillery Brigade, Alamala, Abeokuta, Brig. Gen. Mohammed Danwallis and Secretary to the State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa.

Onanuga and the rest of the team were stopped about 500 meters from the operational point and told not to go any further over fears that the militants might launch an attack from the creeks.
However, Special Anti-Robbery Squad, soldiers and riot policemen who were in the team proceeded further to the operational point of the militants at Ebute-Ibafo.
The secretary to the state government, speaking to journalists, decried the inability of the team to proceed further.
He also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to set up a military joint task force in the state.
