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.
