Tension in Kwara As Offa, Erinle Resume Hostilities!

Hostilities resumed on Monday in the Offa- Erinle axis that became a war zone weeks ago, thus shattering the fragile peace that was being enjoyed in the communities.

Students of the Federal Polytechnic Offa and schools around the institutions were quickly evacuated as gunshots boomed on Monday afternoon. Some people suspected to be Erinle indigenes were believed to have been behind the shooting. Security operatives quickly moved in to restore order. The situation became tense as people scampered for safety. By 2 pm, almost all the schools in Offa had shut down for the day due to the charged atmosphere. Though Offa was calm at the time of filing this report, fear could almost be seen on the faces of the people.

It will be recalled that Governor Abdulfattah Ahmed suspended the Chairmen of Offa and Oyun Local Governments, the headquarters of the two warring communities days after the bloody clashed that erupted weeks ago.
