There has been an eruption of panic in Osogbo as a group of unidentified and armed men have been wielding dangerous weapons and causing mayhem in some parts of the city.
These men were reported to have been shooting sporadically and causing all sorts of trouble, and they have been at it for the past two nights.
Panic in Osogbo over unknown armed men
These shootings have been reported to usually take place between the hours of 10 pm and 12 am.
Some witnesses claimed to have seen some young men shooting sporadically and thought they were rival cult groups battling each other with guns.
Others think that the men are members of the State Boys, a group of mainly political thugs who have become quite notorious during the administration of Rauf Aregbesola.
Those affected in areas like Oja-Oba, Balogun and Idi-Omo have called on the government to improve the security in the State and stop the thugs in the city.
