The Ogun State Government has declared a seven-to-six curfew in Sagamu town in response to recent conflicts between rival cult groups.
From 7 p.m. until 6 a.m., all types of mobility in Sagamu will be prohibited, according to the authorities.
Residents of Sagamu were advised by the administration to comply by the restriction order until security forces allowed for regular operations.
Lekan Adeniran, the Governor’s chief press secretary, released a statement on Monday making this information public.
“This is to notify residents of Sagamu and its environs of the total restriction of human and vehicular movement as a way of taking firm control of the security architecture of the area and protecting the lives of the people and their property,” the statement added.
He pleaded on Sagamu locals to work with law enforcement in order “to restore normalcy and bring perpetrators of these dastardly acts to book.”
In Sagamu, cult members are said to have slain no less than 20 people between Saturday and the early hours of Monday.
