Gov Makinde explains reasons for reopening Shasha market

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has explained the rationale behind his decision to re-open the shut Shasha market in Ibadan, the state capital.

DAILY POST recalls that the market was shut down penultimate Saturday as a result of the crisis that enveloped it.

Our correspondent learned that the crisis started in the market as a result of the death of a cobbler, Mr. Sakirudeen Adeola.

Makinde in a bid to forestall further breakdown of law and order ordered the closure of the market a day after fights broke out between Hausas and Yorubas.

Makinde, however, on Tuesday ordered the reopening of the market.

Makinde while speaking after a meeting with representatives of Yoruba and Hausa communities in the market, said he agreed to reopen the market, having been assured of sustained peace.
