    Osun Government Declares Curfew After Bloody Clash Between Hausas And Yorubas. Photos

    A bloody clash broke out today between Hausas and Yorubas in Ile- Ife, Osun State. The inter-ethnic clash which broke out at Sabo area of Ile-Ife on Tuesday night led to the death of five people. 

    The violence which was said to have started, following a rift between a Hausa man and a Yoruba woman continued till Wednesday morning. Property worth millions of naira have so far been destroyed....

    The Government of Osun State has declared a two-day curfew in the entire Ile-Ife.This has been compelled by the breach of the peace in the area which has led to avoidable destruction of lives and property. The curfew, which will be between 6pm to 7am, will be in force till Friday. 

    The curfew takes effect from today, Wednesday, March, 8th, 2017.

    The government had earlier in a statement from the Office of the Governor, signed by the Director, Bureau of Communication and Strategy, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon, condemned the crisis.
    The statement reiterated government’s readiness to substantially use security forces in a civil manner, for the purpose of dousing tension in the ancient town and restore peace ultimately.

    This is to assure all and sundry that the breach of the peace in Ile Ife is not beyond the control of our highly mobilized security forces.
    “To this end, the Governor of the state of Osun, upon receiving reports of the fracas, the exact cause of which is still under investigation, has ordered deployment of adequate security forces and is getting minute-by-minute situation reports.

    “The Government therefore warns those involved in this act of criminal breach of public peace to end it immediately as the full weight of the law would be brought to bear on anyone arrested,” the statement read.
