In furtherance of its search for peace in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, is set to lead a very powerful team of Police Officers to the state on Saturday, for an on the spot assessment of the damages caused by the crisis.
According to a police source, the IGP and his team, on arrival at the Ibadan Airport, Alakia, would pay a courtesy visit on the state governor, Seyi Makinde, have a closed door meeting, before visiting the scene of the crisis, which has left several residents of the area, homeless.
It would be recalled that few weeks ago, what was largely seen as a mere disagreement between a pregnant yoruba woman and a fulani trader, was later to snow ball into a full blown ethnic conflagration among yoruba traders and their fulani counterparts.
To curtail the spread of the crisis into other parts of the state, Governor Makinde had announced the immediate closure of the Sasa market and declared a dusk to dawn curfew in the troubled area to forestall further loss of lives and property.
Delegation from Northern governors and the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, had earlier visited the scene of the crisis to appeal for peace in the troubled area.
