It was not clear if there were casualties but it was gathered that some persons were injured in the clash.
A resident of Ipetumodu, who identified himself as Taiwo, told our correspondent on the telephone that residents of Ashipa community invaded their town and set buildings ablaze including students hostels, where some pre-degree students of the OAU lived.
Taiwo said, “Hoodlums from Ashipa community invaded out town and started shooting and destroying houses. They set some buildings on fire and people ran away.”
Another resident, who claimed to be from Ashipa community, however, accused residents of Ipetumodu of being the aggressors.
The Public Relations Officer of the Osun State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Mr. Ayo Olowe, confirmed the crisis to our correspondent on the telephone.
He said, “There was crisis and some houses were burnt especially in Ipetumodu. Some persons were said to have stormed the town, vandalised the students’ property and set buildings ablaze.
“They said they brought out the students belongings before setting the hostels ablaze.”
