The long land dispute between the two Kwara towns of Ofa and Erinle Resurface today as the two towns witness another chaos which led to the disruption of activities in the town.



It is to be noted that the two towns have been fighting on land issue since over two decades now.

However, the government of Kwara state has declared a curfew in the town.

The curfew will be in force between 6p.m. and 8 a.m. until further notice.

This follows the renewed hostilities between some groups of persons from the two communities on Thursday.

“The curfew takes immediate effect from 6p.m. today Thursday March 4, 2021. Security agencies have been deployed to enforce the curfew.

While security forces on ground are to maintain the peace, military reinforcements from Sobi Barracks and the Mobile Police force from Ilorin have been deployed immediately.

All residents are hereby directed to withdraw from the streets of Offa and Erinle and all contested areas immediately. Residents are to stay indoors until the curfew is reviewed,” the Governor said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Rafiu Ajakaye.

“The Governor urges residents of both communities and travellers crisscrossing the areas to comply with this directive to save lives and property. He appeals to leaders on both sides to restrain and caution their people against provocative action, and to maintain peace.

The security forces are urged to be very firm in dealing with the situation and in enforcing the curfew.”
