This was made known by the Nigerian Army, 2 Division, Ibadan and the Oyo State Police Command on Friday during a joint military, police press conference held at the Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, Ibadan.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State, Mrs. Bisi Inobanafor, who denounced the purported fight between the army and the police at a check point at Mokola, Ibadan, said there was an altercation at the roadside between a police woman and two soldiers in mufti.
She said, “There was an altercation when a woman police, who just closed from work was on her way home. The woman was in mufti when two men who were on motorcycle (also in mufti) assaulted her. When she retorted they beat her up and she called for help”.
She said the two agencies had since waded into the matter with the aim of finding lasting solution.
The Deputy Director, Army Public Relations Department, 2 Division, Ibadan, Lt. Col. Mustapha Ankar, said, “The issue being exaggerated in the social media is unfortunate. The 2 Division is in harmony with the police in this state. Presently, we are doing joint training with the police and civil defense on how to make Oyo State a safe place”.
