By Abba Gwale

Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and other northern Governors are currently at the Shasha Market to assess the destruction at the scene of the clash between Yoruba and Hausa communities.

Earlier today, the Governors visited the Sasha Emir along with Oyo state Governor, Seyi Makinde before they proceeded to the area.

Other Northern governors are Kebbi State Governor, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu; Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle and Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani.

They visited to Ibadan on Monday night to see the area where violence raged last Friday leading to destruction of lives and properties of mostly northern people living there.

Makinde, who had expressed shock at the level of destruction during his earlier visit to the market on Sunday, said those who suffered losses would be compensated.

Makinde and his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu, who is also the chairman of South-West Governors’ Forum, visited the place on Sunday and sued for peace.

Yesterday, Northwestern governor’s and other traditional and religious stakeholders met in Arewa House, Kaduna, where they discussed security challenges bedeviling the region.
