It was gathered that the governors will, as part of activities for the visit to the state, tour the Shasha area to make an on-the-spot assessment to the market on Tuesday.

Last Friday, February 11, violence erupted in the market after a Hausa man reportedly slapped a Yoruba trader leading to his death. This resulted in wanton destruction of lives and properties as both the Yorubas and Hausas in the community carried out attacks and counter-attacks on each other.
