    Breaking! Fire guts Igbo traders’ shops in Abuja again (video)

    Many people have been reportedly killed and shops belonging to Igbo traders were set ablaze during a clash between traders and commercial motorcyclists at Dei Dei market in Abuja.

    The fight reportedly started following an accident that led to the death of an Igbo woman.

    According to reports, the woman was a passenger on a commercial motorcycle when she was crushed by a truck, allegedly due to the recklessness of the motorcyclist carrying her.

    The woman died while being rushed to the hospital and this caused traders in the area to go after the motorcyclist carrying her when the accident occured.

    The man’s motorcycle was set ablaze when they caught up with him.

    This led to a reprisal attack from motorcyclists in the area.
