Police Arrests Four As Hausa, Yoruba Clash In Ogun State

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in Abeokuta, Ogun State has arrested four suspects in a clash between Yoruba and Hausa traders at the Lafenwa Market in Abeokuta on February 13.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident said two persons were stabbed during the crisis but no record of death.

The violence was reportedly caused by the rumoured death of a Hausa trader who was allegedly hacked down by some miscreants believed to be Yoruba.

Oyeyemi said four persons had been arrested while eight knives were recovered from them after the bloody clash between the two tribes.

The PPRO said;

The violence broke out when some Hausa petty  traders refused to pay the mandatory daily market levy to the market miscreants. The development infuriated the street urchins, who descended on the Hausa traders and stabbed two of them.

There is no death recorded. Two people were injured. Those who are involved in the crime will be dealt with seriously; they will face the full weight of the law.
