The Executive Chairman, Oyo East local government, Hon. Arowosaye Adeyemi, on Tuesday, led traditional council and other top government officials for an on-the-spot assessment of the damages in Kieseni community.

Boundary Arowosaye

The visit was necessitated by the boundary dispute between Aawe and Kieseni communities.

Arowosaye, popularly called Arosad, was accompanied by Hon. Mrs. Mojisola Kafilat Olakojo, the executive Chairperson of Atiba local government, Hon Bamise Alabi (Oyo Southeast LCDA), and security agencies.

They inspected the affected houses in the Kieseni community, including those in Ajoda Igbo Olosun village and Ondese village, that were severely damaged during the dispute.

Speaking on the incident, the Baale of Kieseni, Chief Lateef Busari, regretted the destruction of properties in his community by Aawe community.

“Aawe mobilized themselves here with a low bird trailer packed with an excavator and bulldozer to destroy all our houses, accompanied by policemen and thugs to chase away my peace-loving people from the community,” he stated.

Arosad, in a generous move, provided monetary support to those affected by the crisis, affirming that, “…we have come to assess the level of damage and assure you that the state government, in collaboration with Oyo East local government, has increased surveillance and safety for the people of Kieseni.”

“We reassure you that our administration, along with that of Afijo Local Government Area, is actively working to find a lasting solution to the dispute with the Awe community.

“We commend the Kieseni community for their patience and for not taking law into their own hands.”

Accompanying Arosad in his entourage were; Oyo Southeast LCDA Boss, Hon Bamise Alabi, members of Oyo East local government traditional council, Atiba Chairperson Hon. Mojisola Kafilat Olakojo, Oyo federal constituency GLO, Hon. Akin Alawode, Hon. Mumini Owolabi, Hon.
