Police operatives killed four gunmen in Ilesha, Osun, on Wednesday, the police said on Thursday.


The gunmen had earlier ambushed a vehicle conveying murder suspects to a correctional centre in the town.


Police spokesperson in the state, SP Yemisi Opalola, said in a statement issued in Osogbo that the gunmen attacked the vehicle after Osunjela River on the Osogbo-Ilesa Road after it developed a fault.


Opalola explained that mechanics were working on the vehicle when the four armed men emerged from a bush on a motorcycle and fired sporadically in a bid to free the suspects.

She said that in exchange of fire, the hoodlums abandoned their motorcycle and fled into the bush.


According to her, three locally made guns, one pump action gun; two cut-to-size barrel guns with fourteen live cartridges were recovered from the assailants.


Opalola said that three of them later died from gunshot wounds at a hospital in Osogbo, while the body of the fourth suspect was recovered from the bush.
