Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has described the violence that took place at Shasha community in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital as unfortunate.

Reacting to the development while on a condolence visit to the family of the late former governor of Lagos State, Lateef Jakande in Ilupeju, Lagos State, Osinbajo said the violence that took place in Shasha was tragic.

He said, “I have heard about the unfortunate mayhem and the tragic loss of lives at the Shasha market in the past few days. Shasha market has been a melting pot for traders bringing foodstuff from the North to the South-West for decades.

“So, when a disagreement arises between individuals or a criminal act is committed by one against the other, we must ensure that we see it for what it is; a criminal act, which must be punished according to law, not an ethnic conflict. Every Nigerian has a constitutional right to live, work and enjoy their lives in safety, peace under the law.”
