“Although the fight started after the declaration of the result, that was not the beginning. It’s an old rivalry; they have been taking advantage of events like this to attack themselves. Many people were killed several times like this. As of now, the people killed are more than two. But people are saying only two were killed.

“One of those killed is called Dan Naziru, he was a notorious thug who had been disturbing people here. The other one is also another notorious thug, but I don’t know his name. He was from the other community.”

As of the time of filing this report, no official statement had been released by the police command in the state on the incident.
