Irate youths in their numbers invaded and burnt down a police post located on Olayiwola Close, in the Oregun area of Lagos state on Monday, May 29.
Police sources say the youths stormed the station and attacked the facility, leaving one of the officers injured. The injured policeman was rushed to the emergency centre at the toll gate along the Lagos Ibadan Expressway for prompt treatment.
While the station was on fire, officials of the Lagos State Fire Service were contacted and mobilised to the scene to salvage the situation. The fire was put out but part of the building of the police post was affected. However, no weapon was stolen.
The reason for the attack is not yet known.
This attack comes after some youths pushing for the actualization of the Yoruba nation attacked a police station and a radio in the state.
