Ogun State Government, on Monday, restricted movement from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m daily in Sagamu following incessant clashes by rival cult groups.
The government, therefore, warned residents of the town to abide by the restriction order pending the time the security of the area will improve.
It added that police and other security agencies are on top of the situation to restore normalcy.
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Lekan Adeniran, announced this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abeokuta.
The government assured residents of the town of their security and property.
The statement read, “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 by this restriction order and cooperate with security agencies to restore normalcy and bring perpetrators of these dastardly acts to book immediately.”
Recall that no fewer than 20 youths were reportedly killed in the cult war between Friday and Sunday. But police in the state confirmed only eight deaths.
