The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde and four Northern governors have visited Shasha Market in Ibadan, where a clash between traders led to loss of lives and destruction of property last Friday.

The Herald had reported that the governors –  Alhaji Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi state, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state, Abubakar Bello of Niger and Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state – arrived Oyo Monday night.

Makinde and his guests held a closed-door meeting shortly after they arrived the state.

However, the team visited the Shasha Market on Monday to assess the destruction at the scene of the clash.
