Suspected hooligans on Friday morning attacked Sabo area of Osogbo, the Osun State capital, injuring some traders in the region.

Although policemen had been deployed to the scene when The PUNCH correspondent visited the area, gunshots fired by the suspected hooligans were still heard a few metres away from where the policemen were placed.

A resident, simply identified as Amusa, who spoke with The PUNCH , said that the attack started late Thursday.

Amusa revealed that the hooligans had claimed to be mourning a colleague with a candlelight procession before they suddenly launched attacks on traders.

He added that a yet-to-be-identified trader was killed in the process, and the hooligans also, on Friday, continued their onslaught and attacked more people in the community.
