The recent unrest in Ile-Ife, Osun State, left at least 46 people dead and 96 injured, the police said on Monday.

A statement by the police spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, said 20 of 38 suspects initially arrested for their alleged roles in the mayhem, which broke out on March 8, will be prosecuted.

Two of the suspects were arrested in Ibadan, Oyo State, and another two in Lagos, the police said.

Mr. Moshood said the violence also “resulted in the loss of innocent lives, destruction of properties worth millions of naira.”

Eighty-one of the injured have since been discharged from the hospital, while 15 were still receiving treatment as at Mondayafternoon, the police said.

Mr. Moshood, a chief superintendent of police, also dismissed reports that police conducted indiscriminate arrest of residents in the ancient Yoruba town, saying officers apprehended suspects based on intelligence gatherings.

“That is why eighteen (18) suspects found not to be involved in the crisis were released unconditionally,” he said.

Reports from the town on Monday morning said normal activities have returned, after the violence largely between Yoruba and Hausa residents.

Notwithstanding, Mr. Moshood said the police will keep a special intervention team on the ground across Osun State, urging the residents to give maximum support to law enforcement authorities.

    Words on Marble:

    “The real reason Nigeria’s been declining, sinking, breaking, wobbly, and falling
    and likely to break into tears and pieces very shortly, is the most useless quality
    of its mostly smelly citizens. They just chatter but will never meet to discuss any
    sensible ideas or agree sensible concepts for their own country’s development .

    They just chatter and blab nonsense (over beer for the most part). These are
    not people. These are wretches of the earth. A sum of ₦800 billion is missing in
    Lagos state till today, and likely stolen under the direction of Raji Fashola between
    2007 and 2015, but the retarded populace in Lagos state were long brainwashed
    and programmed to utter curses only on the rival party – PDP – whilst the APC
    treasury thieves haul away the state treasury as private property, for their own
    nuclear families. So long as these idiotic symptoms persist, violence will erupt”.

    • Siraj Muhammad Funtua

      Nigeria is a country where the citizens only know how to condemn and abuse their leaders based on sentiments. In Developed nations, their citizens join hands to develop their countries. We should learn to be patriotic and honest to our nation, Nigeria. No amount of insult and abuse will change our pathetic situation rather it will worsen it. It is our collective responsibility to salvage that s nation from total collapse and disintegration. God bless Nigeria. We shall be great again in sha Allah.

      • Right Minded

        You are mad! Death to every hausa fulani person in every part of Yoruba land from this day henceforth! We will see who will back down! This is not Benue or Southern Kaduna….

        • IgboBlood

          Coward mugu, so it’s only now your eyes are opening and you are reasoning like human?

    • Opekete

      You have just placed yourself at the center of the people you described as wretched and retarded. Your partisan statement does not in any way reflect a genuine concern for the malaise that is afflicting the people but to defend the PDP and years of corruption and profligacy perpetrated on the people. Please do yourself a favor go and get a mouthwash.

  • vay

    Nice one for the effort of commissioner of police in osun state…. Let commissioner of police in benue state and kaduna state resign immediately and be prosecuted for negligence of duty and jeopardising life of citizens in their state.

      @disqus_zw9upAuAHX:disqus

      The truth
      is that President Buhari did NOT make a single sensible appointment since he
      resumed office as president and that’s why Nigeria is looking like a failed
      state. President Buhari appointed notorious thieves, criminals, some nominees
      of certificate forger in Lagos, plus, a raft of stuttering ignoramuses handed
      to him by those who financed the Buhari presidential campaign. The federal parastatals
      in Nigeria now float driftless with no compass for direction. The cabinet itself
      has proved unable since October 2015 to think up any coherent policy, even as
      Nigeria fell into conomic recession in April 2015 – which the country has not
      exited till today. Calling out foreigners is to be intentionally blind to the
      fact that the Buhari government is the first public emergency that need be
      repealed and replaced, as Nigeria’s best way out of a total mess.

      • Nonames

        “I am not an alarmist but I must warn that Nigeria is a tragedy waiting to implode.
        For the avoidance of doubt, a tragedy is a dramatic or literary genre in which the
        main character is brought to ruin or suffers extreme sorrow, especially as a
        consequence of a tragic flaw, moral weakness, or inability to cope with
        unfavorable circumstances.

        I think, in all honesty, that Muhamadu Buhari personifies all the foregoing attributes of tragedy;
        he has derailed irredeemably and should resign. We have become so enamored with the
        phantom of “war on corruption” while everything in Nigeria has collapsed. Our economy,
        education, social cohesion, our institutions, and our security, have all collapsed at the
        altar of “war on corruption”.

          NIGERIA will become a better place if Muhamadu Buhari is repealed and replaced.

          Muhamadu Buhari does not have a healthy mind in a healthy body needed for the job.

      • Kiliwi2000

        NO SIR. NIGERIA FELL INTO ECONOMIC RECESSION UNDER BUHARI IN APRIL 2016.

        THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY THEN CONTRACTED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 25 YEARS.

  • AryLoyds

    Just as expected , the list of suspects is made up of lots of Chinese and Japanese people. Yoruba people are paying their fair share for supporting and helping a this Janjaweed come to power. They must also feel the hot whips.

  • General Sam Bockerie

    Wow!!!!….so we have such an efficient police force? Yet thousands are being killed in Agatu, Taraba and Southern Kaduna by herdsmen without any arrest talkmore of prosecution! Alas those ones deserve to die since they have nobody in Aso Rock to send a high-powered police delegation. Useless country

    • AryLoyds

      The only reason you are seeing this arrests is because the Hausa Fulani community in Ife was dealt a huge blow

  • Citizen

    I thank God for Ojo Tajudeen’s release. he was about his lawfully duty as a police Officer when he was wrongfully arrested. Ojo is a kindhearted police officer and a peace loving man.

  • Mama Kay

    As usual, the same set of losers who can’t accept the fact that there is a new government in town. Yes, Yoruba and any other tribe who participated in the riots should be punished. Human beings by nature move around and just because the people are not from a particular region does not mean they should be killed. How many Nigerians live abroad?

    The same people condemning the xenophobic attacks in SA, are now advocating same in Nigeria. Bunch of hypocrites.

    • vay

      May lightning strike you down and that your cake hole. Who is saying the culprits shouldn’t be prosecuted? Which yeye new government is in town,do you see how your barbaric fulanis are killing them innocents in benue? May ara olukoso strike you and your new government into oblivion

      • Mama Kay

        You are wishing yourself what you wrote and by the grace of God Almighty, you will get it. Yoruba land is not known for injustice even though omoluabi characteristics have left many people because of greed. You are probably one of those people affected.

        You will never start an ethnic war in Yoruba land even if that is what your paymasters want.

        This government of ridding Nigeria of endemic corruption is here to stay, so you are free to emigrate.

        • vay

          As you can run your mouth like tap water fulani bitch…Government that it’s legacy is suckling of its citizens blood,government of nepotism, government of barbarism to mention few, yoruba land is a land of liberty and non of your barbarian people can come there to do anyhow,if they come and behave themselves good for them but to do otherwise they are going down. Buhari rode to power on the trust of the people but end up being a curse on the mouth of the people by being who he is always is…..a blood sucker. As I said earlier, you n your marauding murderers, your family killers called fulanis and your blood suckling government will all be strike down by thunder

        • vay

          Thank your rotten head,my reply to you is suspended by premium times. Omoluabi lenu eee animals… Koni ye ee

    • George

      Abokis yes we join you and your Duara kingdom to condemn Yorubas it served them well pls kill them more and if possible go and wake Awolowo up and rekill him

  • vay

    Buhari u will die miserably for allowing this country degenerate to this…..I just read a news on dailypost Nigeria on how benue people are being massacred and nothing is done. Tinubuuuuu,falanaaaaaa,oshiomoleeeee….all of you socialite what are you all ass looking till this country is running into oblivion? If you don’t stand up against killing here n there against benue people iku gbigbonan ni gbogbo yin ma ku tiran tiran tiran oooo. You socialist you are abandoning this country to murderous fulanis, so what will be left? Commissioner of police and GOC in benue state ….your immediate and extended family will die miserably for allowing innocent people of benue state to be killed like that.. Eyin omo yoruba lapapo ema ma woran, won ti fe pa won tan ni benue ooooooo,ikunle abiyamo ooooooo. Buhari aye eeee oooooniii daaaaaaa ooooooo

    • Lanre

      Vay. Do not vent and be annoyed. This situation Yorubas are facing demands cool, calm, deliberative reasoning. We must avoid the errors of our past leaders.

      • vay

        Appreciate. It got better of me coz this is heading no where but oblivion.

      • IgboBlood

        The “shophiscated” ones indeed. Cowards!!

    • Nigerian

      Vay and other nigerians that thinks like u, pls learn to very facts before u mislead people cos i bet u r educated. The southern kaduna killings and any killing of any nigerian is unfortunat and something we must stop as citizens bt to say nobody was arrested, thats not true…in kaduna lots of people wia arrested in connection with it…u can very dis cos it was reported online even with photographs…look am a nigerian, dis is my country and no place like home,.. I cant make a justification dat someone who kills someone if arrested should be released becos someone killed someone elsewhere or a thief that loots if caught should be released becos other thiefs wia not caught… U guys are so quick to play religion and tribe on any issue then wen dis 2 things dnt favour ur arguement d next thing is political party…in d fight against curruption, are those caught not guilty…dasuki to andy yakubu to former adamawa governer who was jst convicted to the yoruba guys igbo guys, nassaraw nupe…wake up man…follow d news look for facts attend court sessions…information is free…pls stop d naija sentiments…a crime is a crime…it musnt b seen odawise

      • obamajack2

        15 southern kaduna Christians and 2 fulani Islamic terrorist group was arrested in southern kaduna, is that arrest? While fulani herdsmen slaughtered over 1000 host community. In Agatu and Benue over 5000 indigene were slaughtered by this Islamic jihadist. How many fulanis was arrested? Those arrested are the indigene who procure dane guns to protect themselves since govt could not protect them. The fulanis are use Ak47 at will killing the innocent host communities without arrests.

      • vay

        No one is seeing otherwise n I don’t want to insult you….. How many of your murderous fulani people as been brought to the book,since they start their business of killing innocent Nigerians? Is mistake to be chosen buhari not showing his legacy to the world as a blood suckling bastard that he is? You know what just bugger off

        • IgboBlood

          You are just a normal yoruba mouth off slave. No be your tinubu and your yoruba people chose the same buhari as your useless president? Didn’t you campaign for Buhari while insulting the wise ones that saw all these before he was elected by you goons? Didn’t we warn you then? What did we got then? Insults! Now you are crying and mouthing off here. The same saint buhari is now an evil? You never see anything. Ile Ife, the oduduwa capital will be taken over by the gambaris and their emir installed to rule your afonja arrsss like it’s in Ilorin.

          • vay

            Hahaha keep on dreaming twat… On the issue of being modest buhari is still by far far million time better off Jonathan but what a sorry case…. He is a beast, blood suckling one. It is a shame

          • IgboBlood

            The way yoruba brain works. An illiterate, olodo, school certificateless, janjaweed, religion, sharia infested blood sucking animal like buhari is for you better than GEJ. Tufiakwa! Yoruba and hypocrisy.

  • Lanre

    This is very good news. Eyin omo yooba, e se suru, ominira nbo. Oya Dambazau, Buratai, Daura,Ibrahim Idris (IGP) move your troops into Ile-Ife and occupy the ancestral home of Yorubas. Please act fast. We need another emir in Yorubaland.

  • Adetiba

    And all the people to be prosecuted are yorubas while the Hausa names in the list are to be set free

    Yorubas are the glorified slaves of Nigeria

    Shameful

    • Otile

      When you join them in persecuting and killing ND people do you think they will leave free?

  • George

    Yeye Yorubas they never see anything yet. Time will come they will beg to live.

    Awolowo serve the Northerners all his miserable life time yet they disgraced him to his grave and MKO built houses, schools and Mosques all over North yet the poisoned him and killed his wife and Tinubu continue serving them with the remnants left in Yoruba land yet the North never stop killing them in numbers.

    From Ketu to Mile 12 Abokis kills them all, slept with their mama and wife and yet the Duara police parading the same victim as the accused, so what is Tinubu gain in this marriage and Ogboni the supposed Governor is afraid of his shadow because his hands isn’t clean and Tinubu must grant interview every week praising Buhari otherwise they will come after him and OBJ must do same not to remember his large corruptions so who is fooling who.

    • Maria

      Awolowo served them like ZIK did…even to an extent he joined forces with them in 1959 to form a government where he was made a slave president…lol…I laugh when useless yibos comment like idi0ts they are.

      • emmanuel

        The man talk true, you sef don talk, but na who don suffer am pass? At least Zik died a natural death, Awo depressed, Abiola Murdered and Tinubu already depressed (Oluremi hybernated already – She’s been hiding away from the wild Melaye so se would not be impregnated).

  • George

    Tinubu will give that names because Duara police is not ready for that ok, pls ask your brotherme Tinubu who pushed these animals to power.

  • muhammadunfagge

    Commendable. All the culprits, whether Hausa, Yoroba or even Djinns, should be prosecuted and executed. Period.

    • Opekete

      If the people who beheaded the Igbo woman in Kano were set free by the court, these people also shall be set free. Police are fond of indiscriminate arrest after a situation like this. Arrest that is not based on credible investigation and evidence cannot stand the test and scrutiny of judicial proceedings. So we are back to where we started. Nigerians police belongs in the museum.

  • Alpha

    We’ll continue to miss the role of informative press in this country. How do we have informed opinion on issues when there are no independent sources, apart from press releases and briefings?

    It seems obvious that the locals overwhelmed their northerner guests. Sabo used to be a sprawling community and have always been at peace with the indigenes. Most of us who passed through Ife know the place so well but the pictures we saw after the fracas shows there must have been some underlying discontent between the Ifes and their northern guests.

    A truly impartial police will go a long way in ameliorating the situation. There is no way the guest/settlers will resettle and have peace by trying to ride the locals roughshod, using the police.

    • Lanre

      Thank you Alpha. Buhari told the late Lam Adesina that “your people are killing my people.”. He (Buhari) was correct. The Nigerians – Tinubu, Obasanjo, Bode George, Oyinlola, Aregbesola, Bisi Akande are the problems of Yorubas.

  • Oskirin

    no omo yibo? police pls make una do una work…ds arrest never conclude without any omo yibo bn arrested.dere hand dey inside too.

    • emmanuel

      Una never see anything yet. The change you asked for. From Nigbo, to Benue, to Delta, to Ekiti, to Oyo, to Kogi, to Southern Kaduna, to Taraba no killers were ever arrested.
      Sai Baba dey humilate una.
      I can bet that those foolani/Hausa names are either fake or they would be released before day break

  • emmanuel

    If you have no idea, Yoruba land has been fully occupied by the foolanis and there is nothing you can do about it. Aregbesola celebrated his Islamic advancement and forgot that his allies only uses the religion as a cover to do their tribes thing.
    First warning, the next may not be so cheap

  • Olusola

    the flight must have been one sided as no Hausa man is found quilt by the Nigeria Police investigators. only Yoruba fought …… the whole 20 people to be prosecuted are Yoruba. Yoruba ronu..
