According to an eyewitness, the Amotekun men were prevented from taking the cows away by some soldiers reportedly attached to the 32 Artillery Brigade, (Owena Cantonment), Akure.
The source said that the soldiers reportedly claimed that the cows belong to their officers in the barracks and prevented the Amotekun men from taking the cows away.
The source said that “while the Amotekun personnel was marching the arrested cows to their office at Alagbaka area of the state, soldiers numbering about ten stormed the area with Hilux vehicle and prevented the arrest of the cows.
“The soldiers insisted that the Amotekun men would not go away with the cows because they belonged to their officers from the military barrack.
“But the Amotekun officers insisted that the cows have violated the anti-grazing law and must be taken to their office for the owners to bail them or pay for the damaged farmlands.
“Crisis started with an exchange of hot words and it later snowballed into an exchange of blows between the two security outfits on the street. Before we know what was happening, they started shooting sporadically into the air.
“Immediately they started shooting, the residents scampered for safety in order not to be caught in the shooting by the two security outfits.
“It is a lie, we didn’t have any clash with soldiers. There was no issue between us, there was a minor argument and we have resolved it. Saying we are clashing with each other is not true”.
