JUST IN: Communal clash breaks out in Gwarinpa, Abuja

A communal clash broke out in the 3rd Avenue area of Gwarinpa, within the city centre of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, in the early hours of Monday.

This is as videos making the rounds on social media show that several persons have been injured.

Our correspondent gathered that the clash is reportedly between some Gbagyi and Hausa tricyclists.

“The fighting is between Gbagyi and Hausa Keke Napep riders,” a resident told our correspondent on the phone.

“It’s happening on 3rd Avenue where I live, and we can’t go out. Several persons have been injured.” Another resident noted.

The PUNCH, however, could not independently confirm the cause of the clash as of press time.

Meanwhile, the police could not be reached for comments or reactions as the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, did not respond to phone calls and text messages by our correspondent.

Details later…
