Kwara imposes 24-hour curfew

Kwara State Government has  imposed a 24-hour curfew on Offa and Erin-Ile in Offa and Oyun local government councils of the state.
The Secretary to the state government, Alhaji Isiaka Gold, in a statement on Wednesday, said the measure was to restore public order and to prevent further destruction of properties in the communities.
The statement read in part, “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 state government is determined to identify and prosecute those behind the recent crises in both communities.”
Also, the Public Relations Officer of the Federal Polytechnic Offa, Mr. Wole Alawode, said the school had been closed down for two weeks to ensure the safety of the students.
