An eyewitness who spoke to the Tribune said;
“The Bobos attacked a hideout of Greenlanders in the market. After their clash, they attempted to rob the Igbo man who was hawking beverages.
When they tried to collect all the money he had made that day, and when he resisted their attempt, they attacked him with machetes, killing him on the spot. After everyone calmed down, the Greenlander group came back in the evening to attack some members of Bobos hanging around the market when they accidentally killed the Hausa man selling onion.”
