At least two persons reportedly lost their lives in a communal clash between residents of Ago-Are and Tede areas of Oyo State on Sunday.
According to SaharaReporters, a resident of Tede, who simply identified himself as Sola, claimed the clash had to do with a cow market that was relocated from Tede to Ago-Are.
The resident said following the development, a police vehicle and the office of the Western Nigeria Security Network, also known as Amotekun, were set ablaze.
“As we speak, the communities are on fire. Two people were killed while an Amotekun office was set ablaze. Though it has nothing to do with Fulani, this is worrisome,” he said.
Meanwhile, the new Commissioner of Police in the state, Ngozi Onadeko, who led the Nigerian government delegation to Igangan, where the house of Seriki Fulani of Oyo State, was burnt on Friday, said normalcy would return to the affected communities
