Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has called on the police to handle its investigations into the Ile-Ife crisis without any form of bias.

The Governor also wondered why only 20 Yoruba people were arrested in a clash that involved Yorubas and Hausas.
Fayose also said the way which the police is handling the issue, will not build unity in Nigeria.
According to Punch, he said “If there was a clash between Yoruba people and Hausas in Ile-Ife, are the police now saying that only the Yorubas took part in the crisis?
“Both Yorubas and Hausa were attacked. Properties belonging to both Yorubas and Hausas were destroyed. Are the police sayings that those 20 Yorubas that they paraded in Abuja were the ones who attacked the Yoruba people that were also victims of the crisis and destroyed those houses belonging to the indigenes of Ile-Ife that were destroyed?
“In my own opinion, the investigation so far conducted by the police was done with ethnic bias and I demand a thorough investigation that is devoid of ethnic sentiments.
“Also, to prevent future reoccurrence of such crisis, I call on the Osun State Government to set up a judicial panel of inquiry to ascertain the remote and immediate causes of the crisis, as well as identify the masterminds of the crisis.
“Most importantly, security agencies in the country must treat all crimes as the same, irrespective of those perpetrating them. As it appears, crimes committed by Fulani herdsmen against other Nigerians are not being treated as crimes that should be given attention by the security agencies and this is worrisome.”
According to reports, the police confirmed that 46 people were killed and almost 100 others wounded in the clash between Hausas and Yorubas IN Ile-Ife.
