Armed policemen and men of the state security outfit, Operation Burst, were seen in the community yesterday.

No fewer than 10 vehicles belonging to security operatives were stationed in strategic locations in the community, while there was heavy presence of armed policemen at a fuel station close to the collapsed bridge and one of the entrances to The Polytechnic, Ibadan.
