Vehicles Burnt, Many Injured As Yoruba And Hausa Clash In Ondo State (Photos)

Violence broke out on Sunday in the Sabo area of Akure, the Ondo State capital, as Yoruba engaged in a free-for-all with some members of the Hausa community, leading to many people being injured.

It was gathered that the fight involved some followers of a masquerader in Akure who entered the Sabo area, where most of the Hausa resided.

According to reports, the followers of the masquerader passed through the Old Garage area of Akure where some Hausas sold groceries.

The followers were alleged to have attempted to disrupt the business of the Hausa traders which was resisted by the latter, leading to a clash.

Vehicles and motorcycles were burnt, while some houses were torched.

Also, men of the state police command and the 32 Artillery Brigade of the Nigerian Army, were reportedly deployed in the scene to forestall further breakdown of law and order.
