Land Dispute: Osun Govt. Calls on Residents To Give Peace A Chance


By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo

Osun State Government has warned residents of Kajola Community in Atakunmosa West Local Government Area of the state to allow peace to reign in their community or face the wrath of the law.

The indigenes and residents of the community have been at loggerheads over some piece of land located in their neighbourhood.

It was also gathered that the affected residents had fought one another and also threatened not to give up while unleashing mayhem in the community.

However, the government, through the State Commissioner for Water Resources and Energy, Dr. Amidu Tadese Raheem and Commissioner for Lands, Urban Development and Physical planning, Hon Nathaniel Agunbiade warned the affected residents to allow peace.

The two commissioners on behalf of the State Government had summoned the affected residents to a peace meeting and also visited the disputed lands.

Raheem and Agunbiade urged the warring residents to allow peace to reign in the area by not taking laws into their hands over the  land disputes.

During the mediatory inspection visit to the disputed lands in the community, the commissioners frowned at the tension that has enveloped the community owing to disputes and warned that anybody caught or found trying to cause further chaos will be made to face the full wrath of the law.

While appealing to the feuding parties to bury their differences with immediate effect, Tadese and Agunbiade also enjoined them to make lasting peace.

Leaders and members of Kajola community alongside the disputants  who were at the peace meeting commended the peace parley convened by the two commissioners.

They also made  a declaration that they will not allow any untoward act leading to the break down of law and order to happen in their community again.
