Criminal Activities: Ooni Imposes Night To Dawn Curfew In Ife Town

By Adebayo Michael

Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has imposed a night to dawn curfew on Ife to check the activities of criminals in the town.

Criminals, had allegedly, sneaked into the town on Friday night unleashing mayhem on the community, thereby forcing the traditional council members and local security personnel to keep vigil in some areas through the night.

Due to the criminal invasion, the Ooni has, therefore, ordered restriction of movements in the town between 11pm to 5am daily.

This is contained in a statement through the Lowa of Ife, Chief Abraham Ademola and made available to newsmen.

“The Imperial Majesty, Oba Ogunwusi has ordered lockdown from 11 pm to 5 pm in Ife township from Saturday, 29th 2022. No vigil, no night party, night prayers in all churches and mosques,” the statement said.

The statement also said robbers and bandits presence in Ile-Ife is on the increase and is causing the community sleepless nights.

Meanwhile, “the police, with the local securities personnel, are now in the community to ensure security. Anyone caught within these hours will be treated as such,” the statement added.
