Army Stray Bullets Hit Two Residents In Ibadan

At least two residents in Arulogun community have been hit on Friday morning, by stray bullets from the shooting range of the 2 Division Nigeria Army barracks, Odogbo, in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Residents said the two victims, a child, and an adult, have been rushed to the clinic inside the barracks for treatment.

One of the residents, Toyin Abidoye, said there was panic among residents even before the bullets hit the two victims because they were coming in large numbers.

”We have been going through this for some years now. What they do is when there is much noise like this, they will stop for a while and resume later. They have been doing that but it was terrible today and two persons were hit. It is not fair at all. They have refused to stop despite our appeals and protests. They don’t have regard for our lives at all”, Abidoge said.

The General Overseer, The Way of Solution Apostolic Church International, Pastor Segun Jesubunmi, said some bullets had earlier hit his church about three weeks ago.

He said, “We have been living with this problem for a long time now. We are just hoping that things will change, but we are yet to see the desired change.

“I was told the army authorities erected barriers to prevent bullets from coming out anytime there is a shooting exercise, but we still have that problem.

“I am just planning to mend the holes created in the roof of our church by their bullets now. At times, when they damage our buildings, we would wait for weeks to be sure that they had stopped shooting before we repair the damage. If you rush to repair it, and the shooting continues the following day, the thing you repaired may be damaged again.”

The Public Affairs Officer, 2 Division Nigeria Army, Lt. Col. Charles Ekeocha, could not be reached on the phone at the time of filing this report.
