Adedoyin, accompanied with his wife, Yeye Maye of the Source, Chief Iyabo Adedoyin, lauded the Hausa community for attributing the crisis to one of the destinies planned by God and for allowing peace to reign in Ife after the fracas.

He acknowledged Hausa community for always accepting whatever happens as will of Allah, saying there was a possibility of escalating the crisis to other parts of the country if it were another tribe.

The Maye appealed to them to always alert the authorities whenever there was trace of dispute and pass their grievances to appropriate quarters for quick intervention.

She thanked God for the quick intervention, sparing some lives till date and for not allowing Sabo to be totally destroyed.

She called on the affected community to sustain the existing peace for development.

Responding, the Sarkin Hausawa, Alhaji Mohammed Madagali, appreciated the gesture, noting that the Maye has been supportive even before the crisis.

He pledged their support to the maintenance of peace and unity in Ile-Ife, assuring of reprisal attack.
