There was pandemonium in the Agbowo area of Iwo local government council area on Friday as a result of a violent clash between two different associations of bread bakers.

The altercation occured as a result of an attack by the Masters Bakers Association, Iwo branch on Albadr Bakers, another independent group of bread bakers in the ancient town.

The cause of the clash, sources disclosed to newsmen, was because of the refusal of Albadr Bakers to hike the price of their bread in compliance with the directives of the Master Bakers Association.

Sources also disclosed to this medium that Allhaji Areweyo, the Iwo Master Bakers Chairman with some hired hoodlums, allegedly led the attack on their opponent and in the process a pregnant customer sustained serious injuries as a result of the severe beating that was meted on her.

In an emotional laden voice, a staff of Albadr Bakers, stated that the reason for their decision not to increase the price of their bread was because the management of the bakery felt that it cannot continue to add to the emotional distress of the people which the economic hardship experienced in the country had caused.

He also stated that the attack was unprovoked, adding that the attackers stormed the premises of their bakery, Aanu Olu Bread and in the ensuing commotion, destroyed their bread, took away their money, destroyed their flour and descended on their customers and staff who sustained various bodily injuries.

Yemisi Opalola, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Police, Osun State Command also confirmed the incident in a chat with this medium.

She stated that the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Iwo Division has furnished her with adequate information and the command has commended full investigation to unravel the details of the attack.
