Built in 1929, the oldest Police Station in Oyo State located at Idi-Ogungun area of Ibadan has been set ablazed.
The Police Station is the oldest police facility in the old Western Region.
It was attacked alongside Agodi II Police Station which was vandalised.
The attack on the facility followed a pandemonium that erupted after a commercial motorcyclist was allegedly shot by an official of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS) at Agodi-Gate.
According to The Nation, the scene of the crisis on Wednesday was filled with security operatives who were there to prevent attack on the correctional facility.
They included the state operated joint anti-crime task force team code-named ‘Operation Burst’, officials of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, soldiers and warders.
