One person was feared killed in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Sunday as some youths prevented hoodlums from razing down the Mokola Police Station.
It was gathered that the problem started when some hoodlums swooped on the station with the threat to set it on fire.
“However, they were met with resistance as the Mokola youths mobilised themselves and prevented the hoodlums from setting the station ablaze,” an eyewitness said.
He said one boy was hit by stray bullet.
It was gathered that the youth also prevented the hoodlums from carting away some police uniforms that were kept at the station.
Calm has since been restored to the area with the arrival of men of Operation Burst.
