Gunmen on Tuesday stormed the Ilejemeje local government area secretariat in Ẹda-Oniyọ, Ekiti State.

This is coming days after armed Yoruba Nation agitators invaded the Oyo State Government secretariat.

The attackers disrupted normal activities and forced employees to flee the premises for safety.

The hoodlums who were said to have come from the Obbo-Ayegunle community in the neighbouring Kwara State, violently stormed the secretariat, firing several gunshots, making workers run in different directions, running for dear lives, and in the ensuing pandemonium, one of them was injured.

The hoodlums were said to have vandalized the Secretariat building and other property of the council.

Though the cause of the attack is still sketchy as at the time of filling this report, it was reliably gathered that the two communities have been embroiled in crisis for some time over land disputes.

During the attack, which lasted for several hours, one person was said to have sustained serious injury and was said to have been rushed to the State Specialist Hospital in Iye-Ekiti for urgent medical attention, Vanguard reports.

Sources disclosed that the hoodlums who were heavily armed with dangerous weapons like gun, charms and cutlasses invaded the Secretariat at about 10:am.
