This is in observance of the age-long traditional festival where the sipi traditionalists dance round Akure.
On this account, any shop found open would be ransacked, so the reason for it be referred to as 'Du du du' festival which means ' take your own I take my own'.
Adeyeye Michael who happens to be the chief press secretary to the monarch said markets and shops are to close on the 24th of August and 9th of September 2020. He further buttressed on the issue of trading or opening of shops for any reason not acceptable for those days.
Everyone were therefore urged to comply with the instructions although it was made clear the festival would in no way impede human and vehicle movement in Akure.
