Communal Clash: Curfew Continues In Irepodun, Orolu LGs – Osun Govt.

The Osun State Government has directed the continuation of the ongoing curfew in Irepodun and Orolu local government areas of the state.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Oluomo Kolapo Alimi, a copy sighted by OSUN DEFENDER.

Recall that the government had on September 17 declared the curfew after some people lost their lives in a lingering boundary dispute between Ifon Osun and Ilobu.

The state government said the curfew is to maintain law and order in the affected communities.

The statement said: “Governor Ademola Adeleke has directed that the Curfew placed on Orolu and Irepodun local governments continues.

“The Curfew time has now changed to the hours of 6pm every night, and 6am in the morning. Human and vehicular movement is to be restricted during the curfew till further notice.

“This is to forestall attempts of destruction of lives and properties during this period, because of the land dispute.

“Anyone caught wandering or moving around in Irepodun and Orolu local governments during the curfew period will be arrested and prosecuted appropriately.

“Governor Ademola Adeleke reiterates the need for peace between these two local governments, and asked that the ethos of Peace, Love and Unity which the state is known for, be imbibed,” the government stressed.
