Governor Oyetola imposes 24-hour curfew on Osun

Governor Gboyega Oyetola has imposed 24-hour curfew on Osun following the breakdown of law and orders by hoodlums who have hijacked #ENDSARS protest.

A release signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji says the curfew declared by the Governor, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola imposes a 24-hour curfew on all parts of the State, effective from 11.59 pm today, Tuesday, October 20, until further notice.

By implication, the release notes that there shall be no movement except those on essential duties who will be permitted to move around. These set of persons must have valid identifications to move around during the period of the curfew.

It enjoins all citizens and residents of the state to comply with the directive as any person found contravening the order shall be arrested and made to face the wrath of the law.

It also urges citizens to be peaceful and to be law abiding as all efforts shall be made to protect them and their property.

“The Government of the State of Osun note with a high sense of responsibility the unfortunate dangerous dimension the #EndSARS protests have assumed across the country, particularly in the South West States”.

“In our dear State, but for providence, the Governor would not have been alive to preside over today’s security meeting following the attempt on his life last Saturday”.

“In spite of the Saturday incident, we have allowed the protest to continue in the hope that the real protesters would take charge of the protest”.

“Events of the last 48 hours have however shown clearly that the protests have been hijacked by criminals and hoodlums”.

“As a responsible and responsive government that took the sacred oath to protect the lives and property of our citizens, we will not sit and watch criminals unleash terror on our State” the release notes.
