GBAGYI - BWARI CLASH:
People Injured, Properties Burnt.
The clash between Gbagyi natives and Hausa residents in Bwari area of Kaduna State has resulted in injuring people and burning of properties.
The natioguardnews.com correspondent learnt that the clash was initially cult-related but residents saw it as an ethno-religious due to death of native of Bwari.
The warring Hausa residents burnt the main market and some buildings in Bwari.
It would be recalled that not quite long ago the town was engulfed in a crisis due to turbaning of a Hausa man to be a traditional ruler that would be known and addressed as Sarkin Bwari. The Sarkin was seen to be a different lineage from the Gbagyi people that are by tradition, known with the title of Esu of Bwari.
According to Bwari protesters, the newly crowned Sarkin Bwari, Awwal Ijakoro, is said to be from Niger State where he contested for a House of Assembly seat but failed.
Federal Capital Territory Minister, Mohammed Bello, and some of his officials were accused of conniving to deprive Bwari natives of their right to the throne. Military personnel has been drafted to the place to restore peace.
