The Osun State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew on the people of Osun, and the curfew will start from 11:59pm on Tuesday, October 20, until further notice before anyone can come out.
The statement was signed by Secretary to the State Government, Wole Oyebamiji and made available on Tuesday evening.
He recalled Saturday’s attack on the governor, saying Oyetola would not have been alive to preside over Tuesday’s security meeting.
He said they have allowed the protests to continue in the hope that the real protesters would take charge of the protest, despite the Saturday incident.
“Events of the last 48 hours have, however, shown clearly that the protests have been hijacked by criminals and hoodlums.
Therefore, “As a responsible and responsive government that took the sacred oath to protect the lives and property of our citizens, we will not sit and watch criminals unleash terror on our State.
“All citizens and residents are enjoined to comply with this directive as any person found contravening this order shall be arrested and made to face the wrath of the law.
