Communal Clash: We’re Pursuing Permanent Solution To Ifon/Ilobu Crisis – Osun Govt


The Osun State Government says it is working assidiously towards arriving at a permanent solution to the communal crisis between two communities in the state: Ifon Osun and Ilobu, the headquarters of Orolu and Irepodun Local Government Areas (LGAs), respectively. 

Rashed Olawale, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Ademola Adeleke, stated this on Monday while speaking on the crisis at the governor’s office in Osogbo, the state capital.

In the last four days, the two communities have been embroiled in a communal crisis which goes back decades, originating from a controversy over a piece of land. 

Both communities have continued to trade blame with indigenes urging the government to intervene and settle the crisis once and for all.
