One Feared Dead, Many injured, Shops Burnt As Fulani, Hausa Clash In Ondo



One person has been reportedly killed with many people sustaining injuries on Tuesday evening when Fulani and Hausa settlers engaged in a bloody clash at the popular Ogbese Market in Akure North Area of Ondo State.

Precision Online Newspaper gathered that the clash started on Tuesday evening and snowballed into a full blown crisis by Wednesday morning, leading to the burning down of several shops at the market.

A source said the clash was ignited by a fight between the Fulani settlers and the Hausa community.

Our correspondent could not establish any cogent reason for the clash, as security operatives on ground as at press time could not speak on the matter.

Precision Online Newspaper has also contacted the State Police Public Relations Officer, Funmi Odunlami Omisanya, but yet to get a feedback from her.

Meanwhile, there’s calmness in Ogbese market as at press time, with the heavy security presence. But residents and traders could be seen in numbers lamenting about the incident.
