The Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria (CSSLN) has said the Hausa and their host, the Yoruba community in Shasha Market in Ibadan must learn to explore peaceful means of resolving their differences.

The CSSLN Chairman and Speaker of the Bauchi State House of Assembly, Abubakar Y. Suleiman, in a statement issued on Tuesday, said; “peaceful approach” to resolving a misunderstanding would not only consolidate on the age-long harmonious co-existence of the two ethnic groups but will also deter hoodlums from infiltrating their midst and inflicting terror.

Rt. Hon Suleiman said, “The much-needed development in our country can only be achieved in an atmosphere of peace and harmony.

“We, therefore, call on Nigerians to ensure peaceful co-existence wherever they find themselves in the country.”

The speakers condemned the crisis that erupted on Friday, February 12, 2021, in Shasa Community of Akinyele Local Government Area (LGA) of Oyo State and frowned at the “wanton destruction” of property and “needless loss” of lives.

They lauded the swift intervention of Go Seyi Makinde and the professionalism of the security agencies in dousing the tension generated by the crisis.

They equally called on the relevant authorities to prosecute the perpetrators of the crisis.
