Gunmen attacks palace of the Olubadan of Ibadan


Gunmen reportedly today opened fire at the palace of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, during the installation of some Mogajis and Baales.

Journalists and a chieftain of Labour Party who was a former Secretary to the Oyo State Government, Sharafadeen Alli, were among the people who escaped death while the shooting lasted.

While the activity was going on, the four gunmen in a black Toyota Sienna opened fire repeatedly around 11:45am, shattering Alli’s cars glass windows and other cars parked in front of the palace.

They were there for about 10 minutes until the gunmen sped off towards Molete end of Popoyemoja.
 The shooting, however, did not stop the coronation inside the palace.
