Oba Ogunwusi inaugurated the committee in his palace on Saturday in Ile-Ife, Osun. The Ooni described members of the Hausa community in Ile-Ife as his subjects and co-owners of the town with whom he has enjoyed tremendous loyalty in the last 14 months of his reign.
“Thank God for the normalcy, I commend Governor Rauf Aregbesola for being proactive and the security agents for their efforts towards ending the crisis,” he said.

The royal father condemned the actions of those behind the fracas on Wednesday and expressed optimism that they will soon be apprehended and made to face the full wrath of the law.
He assured the residents that the situation had been brought under control by the government and promised that such mayhem would not be allowed to occur again.
The monarch admonished the Hausa community not to retaliate, saying that the Abuja motor park would be relocated from Sabo, while the police station would be relocated too. He urged all the Yoruba citizens to always embrace the Hausa settlers and other ethnic groups as their brothers and sisters for a peaceful co-existence.
