Hausa, Igbo traders clash in Benin, scores injured

By Adekunle Dada

Angry youths mainly traders at the New Benin Market went on a rampage after an Igbo trader was attacked with a machete by another trader of northern extraction.

The clash which occurred on Saturday morning was said to have started after a brief argument between the two traders.

According to PUNCH, the Igbo trader was said to have ordered the Hausa trader to leave the front of his store. The Hausa trader, who felt slighted, drew his machete and inflicted several cuts on the Igbo trader.

A viral video making round in social media showed angry youths in wild protest as they pounced on the suspected killer.

A combined team of armed security personnel made up of military and police had taken over the troubled commercial area.

The State Police Command was yet to make any official statement about the incident as of the time of filling in this report.
