Ile Ife crisis suspects on parade

FOLLOWING the arrest and parade of 20 indigenes of Ile-Ife, Osun State who are being held for their alleged involvement in the recent clash between the Yoruba and Hausa communities in the town, more lawyers have moved to Abuja to beef up the legal team for the accused persons.

National Publicity Secretary of the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, Mr Yinka Odumakin said that “the lawyers are already in Abuja and were also at the Force Headquarters, they have seen the suspects, they interacted with them and they are in high spirits.”

Also, Afenifere will hold an emergency meeting in the Akure home of the group’s leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, next Tuesday to discuss the Ile-Ife crisis in full.
