Oyo State Governor Ajimobi Orders The Re-Opening Of Bodija Market 48-Hours After Butchers And Police Clash


Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has yesterday reportedly ordered the re-opening of Bodija market in Ibadan, the state capital with immediate effect following the butchers clash with the police.

This is coming after the popular market in the state was closed last Thursday afternoon because of the clash between butchers and men of the Oyo State Police command that reportedly claimed about six lives.

According to the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Toye Arulogun who announced the reopening of the market, the decision was taken after due consultation with security agencies and all the stakeholders of the market.

While assuring that that adequate security measures have been put in place by the government to forestall any crisis and ensure that people go about their normal businesses in his statement, he noted that the government will not hesitate to close the market for unhygienic and unsanitary conditions as well as violent and chaotic conducts including such acts that may threaten the security of not just the market but the entire state.

Arologun who further urged the people to go about their normal businesses, prayed that God will comfort the families of the victims of Thursday’s mayhem and grant them the fortitude to bear the loss.
