Security operatives have commenced evacuation of thousands of Hausas who have been displaced, owing to the crisis that broke out around the Sabo area of Ile Ife, Osun State.
This is in spite of the appeal from the Osun State Government, and the Oni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi.
Traders in the area have also been counting their losses after the mayhem, as commercial activities still remain grounded.
The relocation of the Hausas, is as a result of the bloody clash which left seven persons dead, with several others injured in the ancient city of the State, in South-West Nigeria.
The communal clash that engulfed many lives and homes, was said to have occurred after an altercation between a Yoruba woman and a Hausa man, on Tuesday.
Heavy presence of security operatives is said to be around the Sabo and Obalufon areas, which appear to still be in tension, as the Hausas claim they can no longer stay there for safety of their lives.
At the Ile Ife Area Police Command where a make shift camp was put up for the school children, men, and women, who were evacuated for safety, some are receiving treatments from sustaining various degrees of injuries.
Some of the victims said they have no homes to return to, as many also lamented over the loss of their loved ones to the fracas.
Meanwhile, the Police is yet to say anything on the issue, while the Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, is yet to visit the scene of the crisis.
