Senator Ademola Adeleke, Governor of Osun State, has responded to the communal dispute between the Ilobu and Ifon villages by imposing a curfew on the affected communities in order to maintain law and order.
The Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Hon Kolapo Alimi, issued the following curfew notice:
This is to alert the public that the Osun state government’s attention has been brought to the communal fight over a land dispute between the Ilobu and Ifon communities.
Based on this, Governor Ademola Adeleke has ordered that curfew be implemented immediately in the two local governments of Orolu and Irepodun.
The curfew will be enforced between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. every night. Human and vehicular movement is hereby limited until further notice during the curfew.
This is to prevent attempts to destroy lives and property during this period due to the land conflict.
Anyone caught walking or moving around during the curfew time in Irepodun and Orolu local governments would be arrested and penalised accordingly.
Governor Ademola Adeleke sued for peace between these two local governments, requesting that the state’s spirit of Peace, Love, and Unity be instilled.
