We Won't Return To Ibadan Shasha Market Again — Victims Of Yoruba/Hausa Clash

Some victims of the crisis in Shasha market in the Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State have said they will reject any attempt by the state government to return them to the area to continue their trade.

According to the victims, the market space is not big enough for them to trade and their Yoruba hosts are also frustrating them.

Speaking with SaharaReporters, the traders noted that the Chairman, Shasha Traders Association, Alhaji Usman Nyako, said he had discovered another market in the Iroko area of Akinyele village with enough space to offload thousands of trailers. 

One of the victims said, "The space in Shasha cannot accommodate more than 90 trucks at a time."
