Some of the residents of Apete and other communities in Ido Local Government Area said that they are currently keeping vigil to prevent future attacks.

“We cannot sleep now. We have to keep vigil. As I was coming home, they blocked the road. People are now checking cars and motorcyclists coming and going out of Apete.”

But all efforts made to get the reaction of the spokesman of the State Police command, Mr. Olugbenga Fadeyi proved abortive.
