Following the reopening of Sasha market by Governor Seyi Makinde on Tuesday, trading activities have finally returned to the market as both Yoruba and Hausa residents and traders in the community embraced peace.
Normal trading activities have started going on in the market and those whose shops were not burnt in the clash that ensued the previous week between Hausas and Yorubas in the market accommodated their friends.
Governor Makinde at a meeting earlier in the week ordered the reopening of the popular market saying the govt. had to consider the economic situation and peculiarities.
On February 11, a clash ensued after a disagreement between a cart pusher and a stall owner at the market leading to loss of lives and properties.
In a bid to forestall lawlessness, Makinde issued a statement the next day that the market be closed and also imposed a curfew in the community.
