Fear gripped residents of Iwerele, Iwajowa Local Government Area of Oyo State, on Monday, as many were reportedly feared dead. The tragedy occurred during a clash between Oodua Peoples Congress, Amotekun, Operation Burst, Soludero and a group of herdsmen. While the reason for the conflict was still not clear. An eyewitness said a group of herdsmen had invaded a farm in the community with their cattle and grazed on it, a situation which led to the demise of the owner of the farm during the argument. It was further gathered that combined security operatives of Operation Burst, OPC, Amotekun and Soludero were informed to restore peace in the area but they were allegedly ambushed by herdsmen. The number of those killed is yet to be ascertained.
