The Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, denied claims that its operatives burnt down the house belonging to a Fulani Warlord, Iskilu Wakili, after being arrested at his residence Ibarapaland.
The OPC said no one was killed when its operatives arrested Wakili on Sunday morning.
Earlier, the Oyo Police Command had confirmed that it detained three OPC operatives for allegedly burning down Wakili’s house and killing an unknown woman during the arrest.

The OPC coordinator in Abuja, Adedeji Oluwole, who led his operatives to arrest Wakili, described the allegations as untrue.
However, he called on Yoruba leaders to rescue the arrested OPC operatives. Oluwole accused the police of hunting his men while Wakili was moved to the hospital.
Everyevery.ng reported that Governor Seyi Makinde had announced a toll-free number for the State’s citizens to report any security breaches.
He urged all law-abiding citizens of the State to stay calm and go about their legitimate businesses, adding that they could call 615 toll-free to report security breaches in Oyo State.
