Heavy gunfire and explosions were heard in Owo, an Ondo hamlet where Catholic parishioners were massacred on June 5, leaving locals terrified on Wednesday night.

The police quickly allayed residents’ fears in a brief bulletin to the public, saying a few people who sustained gunshot wounds were stable at treatment facilities. Details of tonight’s incident were still sketchy as of press time.

Ondo police spokeswoman Olufunmilayo Odunlami sent a message to Peoples Gazette stating, “Tonight, there was a gunshot incident at Craneburg Construction Company, Owo.” The victims have been rushed to the hospital and are in stable condition, according to police officers who are now on the scene. Late on Wednesday, a similar tweet was published on the Ondo police Twitter account.

Both the number of victims and the specifics of the incident were kept a secret by the police.

The shooting was heard near Folahanmi Junction, close to the construction company, according to a witness who spoke with The Gazette via phone.

“The gunfire is already causing alarm at the area, which is near to a well-known construction company. The witness said, “We can’t even get any sleep.

Social media accounts claimed that gunfire could be heard for more than two hours beginning at 8:00 p.m. local time, though The Gazette was unable to immediately confirm this information.

Stechitegist Media gathered that since armed assailants invaded a Catholic Church church in the town on June 5, killing over 50 attendees during a Sunday mass, the exclusive Yoruba community has drawn public attention. The perpetrators of the act, which sparked anger across the globe, including from the Vatican, are still at large.
