SP Yemisi Opalola, Spokesperson of the command in a statement, said suspected hoodlums armed with guns, invaded Koka Village at about 11:45p.m. on Sunday to kidnap residents.
Opalola, however, said residents and hunters of the community were able to mobilise and engage the hoodlums in a gun battle, thereby aborting the kidnap operation.
“At about 11:45p.m. on Sunday, unidentified hoodlums attacked Koka Village in Ibokun Local Government Area and attempted to abduct some villagers.

“Three villagers and hunters, however, sustained bullet wounds during the rescue operation.
“The injured victims are receiving treatment at the State Hospital in Asubiaro, Osogbo and they are responding to treatment.
