2 Dead as Hausa Traders Clash With Youths in Rivers State

Two people have been killed following a clash between Hausa traders and a group of Onne youths in Eleme LGA of Rivers State on Monday.
According to reports, the youths, who claimed to be members of a local government task force had gone to Opaku Park in Onne known to be a Hausa community and asked the traders to pay their daily levies.

One of the Hausa traders according to the Punch, refused to pay, a decision which angered the task force members.

The ensuing disagreement degenerated into a serious clash between the groups that led to the death of one of the task force members.

A Hausa trader was later found dead at the end of the clash between the task force members and the traders.

A member of the community, Franklin, said some community members later joined the fracas and set a mosque ablaze.

A church was also said to have been razed during the free-for-all that affected the hitherto peaceful community.

The State Police Public Relation Officer, Mr. Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the incident.

“We are aware of the development, though I am yet to get full details. We have swung into action and our men have been deployed in the area to maintain calm.”
