The recent Yoruba/Hausa clash in Ile-Ife Osun State might have taken another twist as  one person who was alleged to have been killed during the fracas is said to be alive.

Reports had traced the root of the crisis to the alleged killing of a vulcanizer who was said to be a Yoruba man by some Hausa men.

The deceased simply identified as  Mukaila, worked just beside the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) park close to a filling station.

In a reprisal attack by their hosts(Yorubas), reports said not less than fifteen shops and houses belonging to the Hausas were destroyed.
