The State Government of Osun has debunked the claim that there was an ethnic clash between Yoruba and Hausa on Saturday in Osogbo, the state capital.
A statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode,indicated that the state remained one of the most peaceful states in the country.
This came on the heels of reports on the social media that there was tension in Sabo area of Osogbo, the State capital of Osun where some Yoruba and Hausa youths reportedly clashed in the early hours of the day.
Egbemode described the online publication as a misinformation, which should be disregarded.
She said, “There was no such thing as ethnic clash in Osogbo. The State of Osun remains one of the most peaceful states in the country.
“Yorubas and Hausas have been living peacefully as a family for a very long time in the state, and that has not changed. We remain one family, in the spirit of national unity.”
