Osun Government Relaxes Curfew Following Unrest

The Osun State Government has relaxed the 24-hour curfew earlier imposed across the State.


The curfew will now run from 8:00pm to 6:00am daily, starting from Thursday, October 29.

Security operatives will still remain on the streets to enforce the new curfew directive, with a view to further maintaining law and order.

Also, all motorcycle operators will now operate from 6:00am to 8:00pm daily as earlier announced. This will subsist even after the curfew is completely lifted.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Wole Oyebamiji on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Osun government, however, effective from today, Thursday, October 29, said it will arrest, investigate and prosecute anyone found to be in possession of any looted item.

The state government appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari and all the security agencies for their various roles in ensuring that normalcy and peace returned to the State.

Oyebamiji also commended the residents and citizens of the State for their show of understanding and cooperation in the last five days of the curfew.

Oyebamiji said, “Government also commends those who took advantage of the amnesty period to return looted items in line with the Omoluabi ethos for which we are known.

“Whistle Blowers could still reach out to us on 08187187678 for information on looted items.”
