The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has declared curfew on Igbara-Odo community in the state after two persons were feared dead in a clash allegedly caused by some youths.
According to reports, the youths distributed some pamphlets inciting the people of the town to probe the monarch, Oba Edward Jaiyeola.
They demanded how monies raised in the last anniversary celebration of the town were spent.
“They vandalised all vehicles in sight there, the palace building and in the process, attacked the Divisional Police Officer of the town,” the witness said.
Fayose stormed the area around 6pm in company with the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Chafe, and other security operatives.
He immediately declared a seven-day curfew from 7am to 6pm daily on the community.
“This is a very bad development. It is a big shame on the community. I am assuring you that we will get to the root of this matter and ensure that perpetrators are dealt with,” he said.
