Ondo Govt Imposes 24hr Curfew On Ikare-Akoko


By Temitope Adedeji Akure

The Ondo State government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on Ikare-Akoko in Akoko North East Local Government Area, following sporadic gunshots in the community.

This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Akure by Mr Donald Ojogo, the Commissioner for Information in the state.

The statement said the curfew was due to security reports and credible intelligence arising from the situation in Ikare.

According to the statement, unspecified number of persons were feared dead as a result of sporadic gunshots that have pervaded the town in the last 12 hours.

It said that security agencies, including the Police and Amotekun, have already been directed to ensure full compliance and enforcement of the curfew.

“All traditional rulers, opinion and religious leaders are enjoined to give maximum support to this order just as they are to rein in their subjects and wards,” the statement read.
