Kwara Govt imposes 24-hr curfew as 4 die in Share/Tsaragi clash

21 December 2015, 06:45

Ilorin - At least four persons reportedly lost their lives on Sunday in a renewed communal clash involving Share and a neighboring town, Tsaragi in Kwara State.

Share, headquarter of Ifelodun, and Tsaragi in Edu, local government areas, have been involved in bloody land disputes for decades.

Meanwhile, the State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the two communities.

A statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Isiaka Gold, said the curfew was with immediate effect.

The statement said a detachment of Nigerian Army has been drafted to reinforce security being provided by the Police and other para-military agencies in the area.

"The Kwara State Government warns that anyone found with illegal arms and ammunition or disrupting peace and public order in both communities will be dealt with in line with the laws of the land.

"The Kwara State Government, therefore, assures of its preparedness to deploy all lawful measures to ensure the welfare and security of all citizens," said the statement.

The statement appealed to other communities in the state to continue to live in peace with their neighbours.

It warned that the full weight of the law would be brought to bear on anyone or group found fomenting trouble in any part of the state, no matter how highly placed.
