GISTS VILLA had reported that Governor Adeleke had last week directed the Commissioner to wade in and resolve issues from warring factions in the interest of peace in the market which is located at Atakunmosa West local government area of the state.
The governor said, ” I am a man of peace and would ensure there is adequate security for the lives and properties of the people, not only in Kajola-Ijesha but also across every nook and cranny of Osun State
“It is high time you all stopped hostilities among yourselves and settle for peace. We will not condone indiscipline. Anyone caught beating the drum of violence will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
“The market is hereby reopened on Saturday, 12th August 2023, without delay to safeguard the livelihood of citizens, who earn their living in transacting their varying businesses in Kajola market.”
