Ikare-Akoko Residents Urge Akeredolu To Lift Curfew

Residents of Ikare-Akoko have cried out to the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, to lift the curfew.

The curfew was imposed by the governor as a result of a communal clash.

The clash also led to the killing of five persons, including the burning of six vehicles, and buildings and the looting of market stalls.

After the clash, a heavy security presence was deployed to the community to forestall any breakdown of law and order.

Residents disclosed that security personnel only allowed people seeking medical attention to move around.

While schools across the state have resumed for the new academic term, schools in Ikare-Akoko were shut owing to the curfew.

The crisis had erupted in the community after a New Year carnival which turned bloody over the use of the Okoja area for the ceremony.

The 24-hour curfew imposed on Ikare-Akoko in the Akoko Northeast local government of Ondo State has entered its sixth day.

Also, residents revealed that the curfew has started taking its toll on daily living.
