The Nigeria Police Force, Osun State Police Command has outlawed youth and street carnivals during Christmas and New Year celebrations in the state.

This was contained in a press release signed by the command’s spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, stressing that the command was acting upon intelligence made available to it which suggested that miscreants, under the guise of street carnivals, planned to cause mayhem.

The command however, urged all organisers of carnivals to hire or use gated compounds to celebrate their festivals.
