It was a drama on Tuesday night as shower of gunshots rocked the Obelawo area along Ikirun road in Osogbo, capital of Osun State when three soldiers invaded a police post in the area to free their colleague detained by policemen.

It was gathered that the gunshots led to palpable tension in the area as residents scampered for safety.

A source close to the police post, who pleaded not to be named, told The Nation that policemen had arrested some suspected cultists and kept them in the custody.

He said: “One of the suspected cultists that were arrested is related to a soldier. The man (soldier) came to the station in the afternoon on Tuesday to secure administrative bail for his brother.
