Following recent clashes among rival cult groups in Sagamu, the Ogun government has announced restriction of movement from 7p.m to 6a.m.
This is contained in a statement in Abeokuta on Monday by the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Dapo Abiodun, Mr Lekan Adeniran.
Abiodun assured residents of the town of their security and property.
He urged residents of the town to abide with the restriction order pending the time the security of the area would improve, saying police and other security agencies were on top of the situation to restore normalcy.
“This is to notify residents of Sagamu and its environs of total restriction of human and vehicular movement as a way of taking firm control of the security architecture of the area and protect the lives of the people and their property.
“We, therefore, implore the residents of the area to abide strictly to this restriction order and cooperate with security agencies to restore normalcy and bring perpetrators of these dastardly acts to book immediately,” he said.
