Following the death of a Fullah business man, Lamrana Bah on Friday, the Fullah business community since Saturday continued shutting their shops onto yesterday.
Irate Fullah youths on Saturday and Monday moved around the city centre forcing their tribesmen and women not to operate any business.
But the Fullah chief, Alhaji Baba Alie, had appealed to the Fullah community to remain calm and be law abiding.
Alhaji Baba Alie said they were discussing with government as investigations into the death of Lamrana Bah was ongoing.
Most of the Fullah businessmen spoken to yesterday vowed to remain shutting their shops until they were fully assured of security by the police.
But some Fullah elders said it was not the Fullah community that was shutting businesses but were met by the business community that they were mourning the death of their colleague.
The Fullah chief predicted that after Lamrana’s burial, shops would open and business continue.
Assistant Inspector General of police in charge of crime services, Francis Munu, disclosed that the remains would be handed today to the family of the deceased and that the police were seriously investigating.
The Fullahs control large businesses and most petty traders buy from their shops goods from Dubai, Hong Kong and China. The closure yesterday for the second time according to many was not good for them. By Ishmael Bayoh
