There is no denying that the community of Gangan in Oyo State will still be sad over what happened in the community on Saturday of 5th of June, 2021.
The calamity that the Yorubaland witnessed is one of its kind because such a massacre has never occurred in the history of Oyo state.
That day, no one knew that such a deadly attack could occur on the land. Everyone had finished the day’s activities and they had retired to their various homes when the marauders appeared with sporadic shootings.
According to the people of the land, the prime suspect in the attacks are the Fulani people, but no one could be so sure if truly the marauders are Fulani, and even though this person is Fulani, on what ground would they have done what they did?
Although there have been several insinuations by Nigerians that what happened on Saturday was a retaliatory attack on how the people of Gangan have ravaged the property of the Fulani community’s leader in the past, what happened on Saturday was beyond what anyone could have imagined as the marauders came in large numbers, according to several eyewitnesses, they were numbering 50 and their target is destroyed.
The following are some of the properties that were ravaged:
At the moment, the panic caused by the attackers is still raging in the community, and according to some indigenes, many people have fled from the community to a neighboring community due to another attack, as the indigenes claimed they assassinated about four of the marauders.
The condition of the town is nothing to talk about at present as people are living in fear and no one knows what will be next, although several of Nigeria’s forces have been deployed to the land.
