Gunmen, have again attacked Owo, the hometown of Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu in South-West Nigeria.
The attack is coming barely seven weeks after terrorists attacked worshippers at St. Francis Catholic Church Owo, leaving 41 people dead and many others injured.
Police have confirmed the Wednesday night attack on Craneburg Construction Company at Folahami Junction in Owo with three people reportedly injured in the incident.
Meanwhile, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, Ondo State Commander of Amotekun Corps (the sub-regional security outfit in the southwest), confirmed the attack on Thursday.
He stated that the gunmen shot sporadically into the air and damaged the windshields of two earthmovers at the site.
I have just left the scene and I realised that the two security men were injured as the attackers shot into the air. They damaged the windshields of two earthmovers of the construction company. The injured men have been taken to a hospital.
Police, however, insisted that no explosives were used in what it described as a shooting incident with no fatal casualties recorded at the time of filing this report.
