Police arrest five suspects who attacked Governor’s wife’s convoy


Police operatives have arrested five suspects who allegedly attacked the convoy of Mrs Kafayat Oyetola, wife of Osun Governor.

SP Yemisi Opalola, spokesperson of the Nigeria police Command, said a police officer was also injured in the attack which occurred at Owode in Ede Local Government Area of the State.

Yemisi said in a statement on Saturday, explained that the five suspects were arrested by the police in connection with the attack.

“On Friday, at about 8:30p.m, the police received credible information that, at Owode, Ede Market expressway, some hoodlums were attacking the convoy of the wife of Osun Governor.

“The Divisional Police Officer ‘A’ Division, Ede, promptly mobilised and led detectives to the scene where the team met CSP Dauda Ismail, the Chief Security Officer to Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of Osun.

“CSP Ismail briefed the team that one Omolola Opeyemi, a driver from Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, drove an unregistered truck and blocked the movement of Oyetola.

“As a result of the traffic blockage, some hoodlums took advantage and started stoning the convoy of the governor’s wife, thereby, wounding the truck driver on his forehead and also injuring a DSS personnel.

“However, five suspects were arrested from the scene and investigation is in progress.

“Further development will be communicated later.” Opalola assures News agency of Nigeria (NAN).
