According to a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Richard Olatunde, this follows the escalated violent clash in the town since Tuesday which has continued unabated, despite the meeting held by Government and the Olukare of Ikare, Oba Akadiri Momoh and Owa Ale of Iyometa (Ikare), Oba Adeleke Adegbite (Adedoyin) to rein-in their subjects.
Security agencies have been directed to ensure strict compliance with the order just as investigations are already on to unravel the real cause(s) of the violent clash.
