Some people going for early morning prayers in a mosque around Halleluyah Estate, a community in Egbedore Local Government Area of Osun State on Wednesday were attacked by some security guards working in the area.

Sources in the area told our correspondent that the incident happened around 5:30 am.

A resident, simply identified as Taiwo Olawoore, who was also going to mosque at the time the incident happened, in a chat, said they heard several gunshots and people ran in different directions to escape being shot.

While contacted, spokesperson for the Osun State Police Command, SP Folasade Odoro, said a suspect was in police custody in connection with the incident.

“We got a distress call from the area and we promptly responded. We made an arrest and the person arrested is being interrogated,” Odoro said.

She further explained that the man arrested was a security guard hired by the community to provide security at night.

Odoro added that the security guard was obviously drunk and reportedly shot into the air, and not at the worshippers going for prayers.

She said that the matter would be thoroughly investigated to prevent reoccurrence.
