Wariths confirmed the incident through a telephone call and promised to update on further developments.

He said: “We were in a meeting with party executives when we heard members of (party name withheld) walking towards our office. Our people waited, for them to go. Not long after, we saw a top member of the party whispering to another and the next thing, we started hearing gunshots and before we could say jack, many of our people had been injured, cars had been damaged while nearby houses were not spared. Some persons were also killed.”

Adewale Osifeso, Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo, could not be reached for comments as of the time of filing this report as he neither answered calls nor responded to messages.
