The Oyo State Security Network Agency known as Amotekun has said its officer, Ibrahim Ogundele, did not intentionally shoot a police constable, Fatai Yekini.

The Commandant of the Amotekun corps in Oyo State, Col. Olayinka Olayanju (retd), said this in a statement made available to our correspondent in Ibadan on Monday by the media officer of the security outfit, Mrs Ayolola Adedoja.

Olayanju said Amotekun corps were invited by the police to join them in dismantling a carnival stage which the police had warned against.

He said in the process, the Amotekun officer’s gun accidentally discharged itself and the bullet hit the policeman in the thigh.

He said, “Amotekun operatives were invited by the police to join hands with them to dismantle a carnival stage. The carnival was held against the earlier warnings to the organisers by the police.

“The carnival stage was dismantled unchallenged, but after this, the gun with Ogundele Ibrahim discharged accidentally and hit the community police officer in the thigh. The cause of this ( accidental discharge) has not been known.

“Yekini Fatai was rushed to the General Hospital in Oyo town where he was treated and he has been discharged.
