The Kwara State Government on Friday said there was no invasion and occupation of 16 villages in the state by a neighbouring country as widely circulated in the media.

The Commissioner for Information and Communication, Alhaji Mahmud Ajeigbe, in a statement said the affected villages of Okuta District of Baruten Local Government Area of the state were calm and still under the control of the Federal Government.
He added that although no foreign government had erected any structure or hoisted its national flag in any of the villages as erroneously reported in the media, the state government had alerted the security agencies on the reports.

Ajeigbe said the Emir of Okuta, Alhaji Idris Abubakar; an unnamed Chairman of Baruten Local Government Council; and security agencies in the area had all confirmed that residents of the 16 villages in the LG were going about their normal activities.
