Police Command in Bauchi has said one person was killed while several others were injured following the civil disturbance in the Yelwan Kagadama area of the Bauchi metropolis.
A statement issued by the command’s spokesperson, Ahmed Wakil, said that there were skirmishes at Yelwan Tsakani, Lushi and Uguwan kusu areas of Yelwa on Friday.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the disturbances emanated following a rivalry amongst the youths of Anguwan Taya and Yalwan Ysakani, which extended to other parts of Yelwa.
