Six people have been reportedly killed and scores injured after hell broke loose in Kaduna State when a fight broke out over a woman.

According to Punch reports, the incident which happened at the Badarawa Kwaru and Ungwan Yero communities in the Kaduna North Local Government Area, was said to have been sparked off after two men from the neighbouring communities fought over a married woman, leading to youths from opposing parts taking sides as it degenerated into a free for all.

Before the fight, it was gathered that even the state Governor, Nasiru el-Rufai, had visited the community and begged them to maintain peace.

According to an eyewitness, the fight started in the night of Sunday, April 24, when a man from the  Kwaru community went to Unguwar Yero to see his alleged lover, who is married to another man there.

The witness narrated th genesis of the crisis:

“The woman was the girlfriend of the Kwaru man, who used to give her money when they were dating. But the lady in question married another person. But after the marriage, the lady and her ex-boyfriend were still dating.

On that Sunday evening, the Kwaru man came as usual to look for his concubine. They met as usual, but the husband, who was already suspecting his wife, trailed her to where they were standing. So, when he accosted them, the Kwaru man stabbed his concubine’s husband in the stomach.

The man later died before he could be rushed to the hospital. But what got people of the area angry was that when Governor Nasir el-Rufai visited the place, he begged the people to be patient, without taking any action to bring the culprit to book.

That was why Unguwar Yero people also started attacking people suspected to be Hausa-Muslim.”

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Zubairu Abubakar, has confirmed the incident, saying that several suspects had been arrested in connection with the crisis.

“So many arrests were made, but I cannot tell you the number of people arrested until I find out from the office. However, calm has returned to the two communities,” Abubakar said.
