Upon encountering own troops, the Yoruba nation adherents engaged the troops in a shootout.Troops, utilizing superior firepower, successfully subdued the attackers, who subsequently retreated in disarray. As a result of this engagement, nine members of the irredentist group were apprehended, while one Semi Automatic Pump Action rifle and ammunition were recovered.

Currently, troops are on the track of the fleeing adherents, and the situation is under control.
