A violent clash erupted earlier today between the Gbagyi natives and Hausa residents in Bwari, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory leaving many dead and others injured, it also led to the burning of the main market in the town.
According to a source, a Gbagyi youth was allegedly injured and killed by members of a Hausa group on Sunday night, but the report is yet to be confirmed by relevant authorities.
Meanwhile, a local resident in the area said tension had been existing between the Gbagyis and the Hausas over Supremacy battle between the traditional rulers of both ethnic groups.
He said the Gbagyis allegedly stormed the market on Christmas day and set it ablaze in what appeared to be a retaliation for the purported death of one of them.
Residents were seen leaving Bwari to neighboring community.
