Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has ordered the closure of Shasa market.

The closure of the market is coming a day after crisis erupted in the market.

Our correspondent gathered that one person died in the market as a result of a charm allegedly placed on him by another fellow.

This resulted into a free for all in the market on Friday.

The State government under the leadership of Engineer Seyi Makinde has, however, ordered the closure of the market with immediate effect.

The closure is indefinite according to a statement made available to newsmen by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa.

“The governor has also approved the imposition of curfew on Shasha. It will run from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m.

“Residents of the affected area are enjoined to go about their legitimate businesses within the hours stipulated by the law.

“Anyone caught disrupting the peace of the community will be made to face the wrath of the law,” he said.
