Just In: Akure Markets and Shops, To Experience Total Lock Up- Monarch

All markets in Akure, the Ondo State capital would be shut down today (September 12) on the order of the Deji of Akureland, Oba Ogunlade Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo to celebrate the Amole festival.
This is the second time this kind of order will be carried out in the last one month.
The Amole festival fixed for today is coming less than a month after all the shops and markets in the Akure kingdom were closed for businesses in order for the community celebrate Aheregbe Festival in the city.

The monarch in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Michael Adeyeye, says the closure of the markets became necessary as part of the age-long tradition in observing the annual Aheregbe and Amole Festivals.

The statement, which enjoins residents, market women and shop owners to comply with the directive, reveals that the festival will not in any way restrict both human and vehicular movement.

Radio Nigeria gathered that for the two days that the shops and markets were usually closed down, social and commercials activities were paralyzed in the town as some traditionalists usually moved around the town in order to ensure full compliance with the directive of the traditional ruler.

But the spokesperson of the community and Asamo of Akure, Chief Rotimi Olusanya, said the two festivals among others were necessary for the peace to reign in the land.
He said the closure of the markets and shops was to allow the traditionalists to pray for peace in the land. He said two out of 365 days in a year were not too much to sacrifice for the peace of the town.
