Government of Osun has said that it has spent over N8 million for the provision of relief materials to victims of rainstorm and communal crisis in the state.

The General Manager, Osun State Emergency Management Agency (OSEMA), Mr Oyetunde Oyesiji stated this during a chat with Community News in his office, Osogbo on efforts of the agency in providing relief materials to victims of recent communal crisis in Oba-Ile and Oba-Oke, as well as other affected communities across the state.

Oyesiji noted that the agency had provided some items like plastic buckets, roofing sheets and bags of rice to victims of the crisis.

The general manager expressed the readiness of the agency to commence impact assessment in the communities to examine the level of destruction, to ensure proper distribution of relief materials to the victims.

He lauded the state government for quick intervention by setting up a  five-man committee headed by the Secretary to Osun State Government (SSG), Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, to restore permanent peace in the communities.

Oyesiji called on people of the state to always desist from acts capable of exposing them to disaster,  while urging them to promptly report any sign of disaster in their various communities to government for proper action.

Oyesiji, however, commended Governor Rauf Aregbesola-led administration in the state for his love to the citizens of the state.
