At least one person has been reported killed, as Hausa and Yoruba people clashed at Ring-road in Ibadan South West Local Government Area of Oyo State on Sunday.
Oyo News reports that chaos ensued after a lottery kiosk operator, popularly known as Baba Ijebu, Mufutau Sanni, was reportedly killed, following injuries sustained while trying to separate a fight between an Hausa man and his Yoruba counterpart on MKO Abiola Way.
According to an eyewitness, who saw the whole scenario play out, trouble started when argument ensued between an Hausa trader and his customer, a development which caused Sanni to intervene with motive to resolve the matter.
Sanni’s intervention, however, did not go down well with Hausas who are majorly commercial motorcycle operators, which made them to descend heavily on him.
The attack on Sanni, according to the eyewitness, landed him in a nearby hospital, where unconfirmed report said he had given up the ghost.
As of the time of filing this report, the Nigerian Police personnel and Amotekun have taken over the security of the scene of the attack.
