Following the violent communal clash between the Hausa and Yoruba community, the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode , in swift reaction to quell the crisis, placed immediate curfew in locations where the fracas occurred and ordered the popular Mile-2 Market in Ikosi-Isheri Local Council Development Area, LCDA, shut indefinitely.
Ambode gave the order during media briefing at the State House, Alausa, Ikeja, in company of the Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde.
Ambode, said the closure of the Mile 12 Market and the curfew would help security agents to restore peace.
He added that the curfew would only affect four streets — Oniyanrin, Maidan, Agiliti 1 and Agiliti 2.
The governor said the police and other security officials were managing the situation, adding that some hoodlums had exploited a minor clash to cause a breakdown of law and order in the area.
The CP, Fatai Owoseni, said policemen had already been deployed in the area to enforce the order of the governor, adding that nobody died in the clash.
