The Kwara State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on Offa and Erin-Ile towns in Offa and Oyun Local Government Councils with immediate effect. The curfew is to restore public order in both communities following recent disturbances. All human and vehicular movement is hereby barred in Offa and Erin-Ile. In line with this order, the security agencies will deal decisively with any found contravening the curfew.
Furthermore, the state government will bring the full weight of the law to bear on anyone who disrupts public order or otherwise incites violence in any part of the state under any guise. While assuring law-abiding citizens of its resolve to secure lives and properties, the Kwara State government is determined to identify and prosecute those behind the recent crises in both communities.
