Nigeria security situation is gradually getting out of hands as lives of many Nigerians are in danger including the security personnel who are to protect the citizens.
In the case of Kwara state, there was pandemonium in Oko Obbo lle, Ekiti local government area of Kwara State on Monday as yet to be identified herdsmen armed with dangerous weapons ambushed men of the local vigilante who were on patrol around 8:30pm.
According to the report, the vigilante patrol team was patrolling along Obbo ile- Isapa axis when they were attacked with the herdsmen who left one of the vigilante team, Mashud Taye, with machete cuts before disappearing into the bush.
In a release signed by the spokesman of the NSCDC in Kwara State Babawale Zaid Afolabi, explained that the incident occurred when men of the Obbo ile- vigilante team were on routine patrol.
