Militants’ invasion: Security beefed up in Ogun communities

Following militants’ invasion of Imushin, Elepete, Ita-Oluwo and other communities in Ogun State, security has been beefed up in the general area.

This is just as the Lagos Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni, his Ogun counterpart, Abdulmajid Ali and senior army and naval officers Monday visited the affected communities to see things for themselves. Our correspondent gathered that troops deployed to Operation AWATSE have been dispatched to patrol the areas to avoid a repeat of the massacre that took place on Saturday.

It was learnt that the security chiefs had a meeting with the Imushin monarch, Oba Taiwo Adebunmi Gbamboshe.
Confirming that a joint operation has commenced in the area, the Commander, Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) BEECROFT, Commodore Abraham Adaji said it was to ensure the militants do not have field day.

“Yes, there is increased security presence in the area. Our personnel deployed to Operation AWATSE are working in collaboration with the police to keep the affected areas safe and ensure that the armed men do not have field day,” he said.
