There had been clashes between the town of Offa and Erin-Ile in Offa and Oyun local governments of Kwara State, which has now been renewed in the past days as one person has been reported dead already, and this time around, the clash is as a result of the hostilities between members of transport unions in the two councils, which began on Wednesday, escalated yesterday.
There was a report of gunshots and the use of weapons during the fracas. The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) office in the area was reportedly set ablaze by hoodlums.
It was also gathered that the crisis was between members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) over a space of land earlier declared as unity land between Offa and Erin-Ile communities.
The state government has imposed a curfew on the two towns. In a statement, Governor AbdulRaman AbdulRazaq’s spokesman Rafiu Ajakaye said the curfew would be in force between 6pm and 8am until further notice.* BEST DEALS & OFFERS*
