Hausa And Gbagyi Youths Clash In Bwari Near Abuja, One Dead, Many Injured

One person has been confirmed dead while many others have been left injured in a fight between the Gbagyi natives and Hausa residents in Bwari, an Abuja suburb yesterday December 25th. Many residential homes as well as business places were set ablaze during the fight.

It was gathered that the town was recently engulfed in crisis following the turbaning of a new Hausa traditional ruler known as “Sarkin Bwari” who is of a different lineage from the Gbagyi people that are traditionally known to have the title of “Esu of Bwari.” The Bwari indigenes accused the FCT minister, Mohammed Bello, of imposing a non-indigene on them as a ruler.

Military officers have been drafted to the area to restore calm.
