Osun: Thugs Attack Iwo Local Govt Secretariat, Destroy Properties




Some yet to be identified persons on Saturday attacked Iwo Local Government Secretariat in Osun State.

According to sources at the Oluwo of Iwoland’s palace, the hoodlums damaged properties and set a vehicle ablaze during the attack.

Confirming the attack, a member of the state cabinet stated that the hoodlums also looted some offices in the Secretariat.

The hoodlums moving in large numbers also looted Tuns Farm along Osogbo/Ikirun road.

An aide to the chairman of Iwo East LCDA, who does not want his name mentioned, said the Secretariat of the LCDA was looted by some hoodlums.

Naija News reports that Governor Gboyega Oyetola had recently suspended the 24-hour curfew imposed on the state to curb the breakdown of law and order.

He had imposed the curfew to check the dangerous dimension the #EndSARS protest had taken in the state, adding that the government is bound to protect the lives and properties of the citizenry.
