The Kwara State police command have repelled a reprisal attack by suspected cultists who invaded the formation on Friday.

According to the spokesperson of the police, the assailants attacked the command after the force had intervened in a situation earlier around Surulere, Babobo and Oja Tuntun areas of the state capital.

He said two tricycles attacked the police headquarters in Ilorin, firing sporadically but were resisted by men and officers of the command.

He said, “We had gone to put a situation under control this morning involving two cult groups and we made some arrests.

“These boys mobilised themselves and began to attack the police because one of them jumped inside a canal in Surulere while trying to evade arrest.

“We called the Fire Service to retrieve the body but the boys came to disrupt them but the police were able to retrieve the corpse from the cult guys later.”

He, however, said the police had launched an investigation into the matter to unravel the mystery.
