Ademola Adeleke

Ademola Adeleke, the governor of Osun State, has placed a curfew on villages in Orolu and Irepodun local government area of the state.

News About Nigeria reports that the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Hon Kolapo Alimi, issued a curfew notice to enforce law and order in the region following a communal confrontation over a land dispute.

The two affected communities are  Ilobu and Ifon.

“This is to inform the public that the attention of the Osun state government has been drawn to the communal clash on land dispute between Ilobu and Ifon Communities. Based on this, Governor Ademola Adeleke has directed that curfew begins immediately in the two local governments: Orolu and Irepodun local governments,” Mr Alimi said in a statement.

The curfew was ordered to start right away in the two local governments affected—Orolu and Irepodun local governments—by Governor Ademola Adeleke.

Every night between the hours of 8 pm and 6 am, the curfew will begin. Movement of people and vehicles is thus prohibited during the curfew until further notice, according to the statement.

According to the government, the curfew was put in place to prevent attempts to destroy lives and property during this time due to the land dispute.

During the time of the curfew, the government issued a warning that anyone found walking or moving around in the local governments of Irepodun and Orolu would be detained and subject to the proper legal action.

Governor Adeleke sought peace between these two local governments and requested that the state’s spirit of peace, love, and unity be instilled.
