SAHARANEWS – The Police and Army have clashed in Osogbo, the Osun State capital after some soldiers were said to have invaded the police headquarters.



The tension started after the soldiers allegedly invaded the police command headquarters on Monday afternoon following the arrest of one of their colleagues who allegedly stabbed a police officer on Saturday night.

The reason for the alleged stabbing is, however, yet to be clear.



But the soldiers were said to have invaded the police premises with the intention of freeing their colleague from detention.
