How Bandits Attacked Oyo Prison To Free Fulani Warlord, Iskilu Wakili From Detention

KanyiDaily had earlier reported how gunmen attacked Oyo prison with explosives on Friday night and set an unspecific number of inmates free.

According to Sahara Reporters, the gunmen are believed to be bandits whose sole aim was to release the detained notorious Fulani warlord, Iskilu Wakili, and other criminal Fulani herdsmen in the facility.

Top prison officials said that the gunmen, three days before the Friday invasion, struck in Ogbomoso, a neighbouring town to Oyo, and the security operatives were fully aware of their presence in the area.

A source said, “The attack in Oyo last night from the Ogbomosho axis was a well-coordinated Fulani attack aimed at securing the release of Wakili, the terrorist whom (Sunday Adeyemo) Igboho drove away from Ibarapa. I am informed by my staff and very reliable people that he was the object of that attack last night at about 10pm.”

“The rest was just drama. My security staff told me the gunmen struck three days ago on the Oyo-Ogbomosho Road and around that time, their strange faces were also seen around an area the boys described to me. This was a well-coordinated attack with the objective to free Wakili and other Fulani inmates.”

KanyiDaioy had reported how Iskilu Wakili was arrested after a gun battle with members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in Ibarapa, Oyo State.

There had been reports that Wakili and his gang were involved in the killings and kidnapping of several people in Ibarapa and Oke-Ogun areas of Oyo.
