Osun communities sign peace accord as Govt imposes curfew

The two feuding communities of Ilobu and Ifon have signed a peace agreement, the Osun State Government said on Saturday, putting an end to their recent brutal confrontations.

The governor of Osun state, Ademola Adeleke, decided to impose a 24-hour curfew on Irepodun and Orolu local government areas after learning that the two communities were involved in a communal conflict that had been causing wanton destruction of lives and property for a few days.

But in a statement released on Saturday and signed by the state commissioner for information and public awareness, Mr. Kolapo Alimi, he revealed that the 24-hour curfew imposed on the two communities continued even after the peace agreement was reached.
