He called on citizens of the state as well as other tribes resident in Osun to go about their lawful duties without fear of intimidation, as government has put everything in place for their security.

Aregbesola who condemned the actions of those behind the fracas at Ife, promised that the perpetrators will be apprehended and made to face the full wrath of the law.

He said the present administration will continue to work to ensure that the activities of miscreants are completely wiped out of the State and make Osun the most peaceful State in the country.

According to Aregbesola, "Yesterday's event at Ile-Ife is highly unfortunate and least expected, it was caused by some senseless set of people who took laws into their hands.

"We will not allow miscreants in our State, we will fish them out. Especially the perpetrators of the fracas at Ife, we are going to arrest them from their hiding place and prosecute them.

"I appeal to members of the Hausa community in our dear State to remain calm and go about their lawful activities.

"Everything is under control by the government and I promise you that it will never happen again," the Governor said.

Governor Aregbesola later proceeded to Ile Ife where he visited the scenes of the clash.

He expressed regret that the incident happened.

He was received at the entrance to the town by the Serikin Hausa who accompanied him to visit the scenes.
