Pandemonium As Hunter Shots Man Dead In Osun, Plans To Dump Body

There was chaos in Iwo community on Tuesday following an incident where a local hunter, yet to be identified, shot and killed a resident, attempting to dispose of the corpse afterward.

Reports indicate that around 3 am, the local hunter fatally shot a man, and while trying to flee with the body, he was apprehended by some locals.

The situation escalated into chaos as youths took to the streets, protesting and setting up bonfires. However, security operatives intervened, restoring peace and order in Iwo.

In a statement released by the Osun Police Command through its spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, it was stated: “The Osun State Police Command is miffed with the report of the killing of a man in Iwo despite continuous warnings of members of the public especially hunters and other local security outfits on the use of guns (firearms).”

“The Command is using this medium to appeal to members of the public especially the family of the deceased and residents of Iwo to remain calm and not to take law into their hands as the Command has set up a team of crack detectives to investigate the circumstances that led to the shooting/killing of the man in the town.
